  • Being stood up is like being the last fruit on the tree, Left to wither through the winter Feeling angry is like carrying a volcano in the pit of your stomach that threatens to erupt at any moment The leaves fell from the tree like a thousand paratroopers Leaping into battle behind enemy lines The class was as boring as counting the perforations in a bag of PG tips!

  • A Simile poem By Stanley Cook
  • Like the white curls from a gigantic beard Drifting across the barber’s shop floor In the breeze from the open door; Like the broken parts of the ice floe Afloat on the blue of the ocean, Drifting southward from the Pole; Like a heavily laden treasure fleet In a light wind on the calm sea, Hardly moving with all sails set; Like suds of foam from the waterfall That lathers the rocks at its foot, Gliding over a tranquil pool; Like wool from a fleece, Like smoke from a fire, Like islands in the sky.
  • Your Turn
  • Like the white curls from a gigantic beard Drifting across the barber’s shop floor In the breeze from the open door; Like the broken parts of the ice floe Afloat on the blue of the ocean, Drifting southward from the Pole; Like a heavily laden treasure fleet In a light wind on the calm sea, Hardly moving with all sails set; Like suds of foam from the waterfall That lathers the rocks at its foot, Gliding over a tranquil pool; Like wool from a fleece, Like smoke from a fire, Like islands in the sky.
  • Name the Title - D.H. Lawrence Like a glove, a black glove thrown up at the light, And falling back Wings like bits of umbrella Hanging upside down like rows of disgusting old rags And grinning in their sleep

  • How is a skater like the earth in its orbit?
  • Ted Hughes With arms swinging, a tremendous skater On the flimsy ice of space, The earth leans into its curve -
  • Norman Nicholson And chiselled clear on stone A spider-web of shell, The thumb print of the sea.
  • May Swenson On silent hinges Open-folds her wings Applauding hands.
  • Phoebe Hesketh Giraffe-tall, gormless somehow, Heads hanging Over the next garden.

  • The Sorcerer’s Apprentice
  • The angry clouds marched across the sky. The lonely train whistle cried out in the night. The hungry chainsaw growled loudly. The stubborn dense fog swallowed us. The evening stars winked at me from the sky.
  • Which is the grumpiest?
  • Who is in charge?
  • Which is the wisest?
  • He who owns the whistle, rules the world By Roger McGough January wind and the sun Playing truant again. Rain beginning to scratch Its fingernails across The blackboard sky In the playground Kids divebomb, corner At Silverstone or execute Traitors. Armed With my Acme Thunderer I step outside, Take a deep breath And bring the world To a standstill.
  • The Moon By Percy Shelley AND, like a dying lady lean and pale, Who totters forth, wrapp'd in a gauzy veil, Out of her chamber, led by the insane And feeble wanderings of her fading brain, The moon arose up in the murky east, A white and shapeless mass. Art thou pale for weariness Of climbing heaven and gazing on the earth, Wandering companionless Among the stars that have a different birth, And ever changing, like a joyless eye That finds no object worth its constancy?
