A Little Fire

Fire – By June Perkins

A little spark turned into a fire
It jumped out the fire place
Creeping . . .crawling… creeping….growing
Bigger and bigger
Red and yellow flames leaping everywhere
He got bigger than a giant.
Bigger than a giant
Turned into a monster
Then he was

Library Ripple

putting up the feet



This is one view of the library display for Ripple. You can see the feet and leaves, the poet’s tree, and the heart ripple butterfly picture. I am working on some collages of all our events and you’ll see some more up here soon. Thanks to the librarians there is also an awesome display of poetry books for children and adults out. They ordered some in from other libraries. Thanks librarians!!!

On another note any poets on the wall who have a website link (homepage) can send me their link and I’ll post it here after it’s been through a review process – for a number of reasons, especially as I want this to be a family friendly site.

I will also gradually post some links to help out teachers who want to integrate poetry into their teaching curriculum and maybe do some site reviews. Poetry ripples on and on.

Thanks to Years 2AM and 2 ML from Tully State Primary for hosting Mission Beach year 4s. I’ve seen you are still writing some poems for optional homework! I look forward to hearing more from you all and hope that you continue to write. Well done with your hosting, and creation of a poetry activity for so many children.
