I live in the city in a street;I almost never trip upon It is crowded with traffic and feet; my basketball or drums, There are buses and motors and trams;And I dont pay attention I wish there were meadows and lambs. to cake and cookie crumbs! The buildings all stand in a row,Why do I have to clean my room? There is smoke everywhere that I go. I think my room looks nice. I dont like the noises I hear,Theres pizza in the corner, I wish there were woods very near. but its only half a slice.Im not at all worried about There is only one thing that I love, the gravy on the chair, And that is the sky far above,My piles of model planes and trains, There is plenty of room in the blue my stacks of underwear! For castles of clouds and me, too!I will admit some bits of clay Student 4: This poem is about a girl who lives are sticking to the wall. in a small village on Lantau Island.I hardly even notice them My home is a house near a wood and do not mind at all.

I simply dont know why! There is no one to play with at all, The trees are so high and so tall;Student 2: My poem is called ‘Wrestling’ And I should be lonely for hours,I like wrestling with Herbie because Were it not for the birds and the flowers.Hes my best friendWe poke each other I wish that I lived in the city,(but not very hard) To see all the trams going down,And punch each other A twinkling street that is bright,(but not very hard) With wonderful colours, at night!And roll on the grassAnd pretend to have fights Student 5: This poem is called ‘The Wind’Just to make our sisters scream Who has seen the wind? Neither I nor you:But sometimes if he hits too much But when the leaves hang tremblingAnd it hurts The wind is passing throI get mad Who has seen the wind?And I punch him back Neither you nor I:As hard as I can But when the trees bow down their headsAnd then we are both crying The wind is passing by.And going into our housesAnd slamming our back doors on each other Everyone together: Our last poem is called ‘Rainbow’But the next day, if its sunny Rainbow, rainbow in the sky,We come out into our yards I look at your and wonder why,And grin at each other Your colours never run or smear,And sometimes he gives me an apple And how you so suddenly appear,Or I give him a cookie and Beautiful, colourful and bright, Then slowly fade away from sight.
