    Everyone has had a raindrop race at one time or another. The best was slushy snow. I thought this poem was brilliant.

  4. Being Brave At Night

    The other night 'bout two o'clock, or maybe it was three,
    An elephant with shining tusks came chasing after me.
    His trunk was wavin' in the air an' spoutin' jets of steam

  7. The Rainbow

    Boats sail on the rivers,
    And ships sail on the seas;
    But clouds that sail across the sky
    Are prettier far than these.

  8. What Is Pink?

    What is pink? A rose is pink

    This is a wonderful poem. It talks about stuff that most children are scared about, and it has a moral too, which is life is hard but no matter what don't give up.

  11. The Moon

    The moon has a face like the clock in the hall;
    She shines on thieves on the garden wall,
    On streets and fields and harbour quays,
    And birdies asleep in the forks of the trees.

    I got it from crawling along in the dirt
    And biting two buttons off Jeremy's shirt.
