What Do You Think Of That?

BAT 3

These two poems ‘I’ and ‘I Am A?’ are the last in this series of one or two children’s poems in a picture. More may follow later this year. As per usual, anyone who wishes to use them, such as in a poetry speaking festival or theme programme, is most welcome to do so. 

With good wishes,

A Bit About Me

BB3

This is the latest in the short series of children’s poems placed inside a photo. Teachers and students of English and the dramatic arts are free to use them. I hope they prove fun and useful. 

With good wishes,

Zipppp…….. Splat!

chameleon poem

Zippp……  Splat!  is the third poem in a short series I am creating in which a children’s poem is placed in a photo. As some of you may know, I have been writing  and publishing children’s poetry for years. Should anyone wish to use the poem, they are more than welcome to do so. Enjoy!

Another photo and poem combination will follow later this week. 

Hello Butterfly

Flutterby

”Hello Butterfly” is a short poem for children I placed into a photo. Anyone who has looked at earlier posts will have seen and read poems for children written by me. I have had numerous poems used in schools in South Africa. My particular interest is in writing poems for children to use in Speech and Drama as exercises or for public performance. To this end, a book of my poems for young people called ”Fantastic Spacey Racy Thing and Lots and Lots of Other Poems” was published a few years ago. Anyone wishing to use ”Hello Butterfly” is free to do so with acknowledgement of the poet.

 Greetings,

A Confession Session:

Don’t blame the boys in

the neighbourhood.

Don’t blame the lonely old man in

the park with nothing to do.

Don’t blame the girls on their bikes

or the guy with the blue spiky hair

for the amazing graffiti on the wall.

I’m the doodle bug that sneaks out

in the dark.

Lightning quick on the draw,

if you’ll excuse the pun,

I take pictures from in my head

and put them on the wall.

I think it’s super cool to

see people’s faces in the morning.

Who put that there?

Amazing. Wizard. Magic.

Absolutely wicked!

This run-down place is now an art space,

a gallery of wild imagination.

Yo, bro.

Check it out, man.

So don’t blame anyone but me

for the art work that’s blowing your mind away,

and it’s absolutely free.

From the doodle-bugging art genius that’s

really, really

ME
