This week, Year 6 have been writing imagery poems about Autumn. They tried to appeal to a different sense in each stanza. The poem did not have to rhyme, but this example from Penny D cleverly combines rhyme and imagery.
A crimson ribbon across the floor
Gradually piles up, more and more.
Other colours join the parade,
Red, gold and vibrant marmalade.
Now the branches are fully bare,
No leaf to be seen, not one is there.
Trees stand, like soldiers, strong and tall,
All for one and one for all.
A quarrel of voices is calling out,
Children play and run about,
The whistling of the wind fills the air,
A ginger fox scuttles into his lair.
Heavy conkers plummet all around,
Landing with a thud on the leafy ground.
