Year 8 English
In English during lockdown, Year 8 were looking at animal poetry, they were asked to write poems from the perspective of an animal.
Day in the life of a giraffe
Twitching ears signify a new day,
Bright sun sizzles on the horizon,
Baby feet stomp around to let mothers
know its feeding time.
Long necks sway in the breeze patiently
waiting for babies to finish.
The call for water is the only one that
Scorching sun beats down on the dry
Tree top leaves are nibbled on route,
Aggression and heard conflict bubbling on
Bendy necks are at the ready,
Like a cricket bat swung, attacks start.
Long necks hit each other,
but there can only be one winner of the
fight for male superiority.
The long day comes to an end.
As its time to settle down the Sahara
becomes deadly quiet,
Sleeping with one eye open is the only
way to be safe,
But never underestimate what can come
Take a dive in the deep blue sea
My wing like flippers propel me
All the way to the ocean floor
Where I love to go and explore
Travelling back to the sands of my birth
I hide my eggs in the soft grainy earth
I don’t wait to see, if boy or girl they will be
As the moonlit waters wash over me
I venture on in the deep blue sea
Hoping my hatchlings will follow me
To far off land and exotic shore
Where maybe one day we will meet once more.
