					                Over the Rainbow
Somewhere over the rainbow, way up high,
There’s a land that I heard of, once in a lullaby*,
Somewhere over the rainbow, skies are blue,
And the dreams that you dare to dream, really do
  come true.
Someday I’ll wish upon a star and wake up where
  the clouds are far behind me,
Where troubles melt like lemon drops,
Away above the chimney tops*, that’s where you’ll
find me,
Somewhere over the rainbow, blue birds fly,
Birds fly over the rainbow, why then,            10
Oh, why can’t I?

         One Question from a Bullet

I want to give up being a bullet
I’ve been a bullet too long.
I want to be an innocent coin
In the hand of a child
And be squeezed through the slot      5
Of a chewing gum machine.

I want to give up being a bullet
I’ve been a bullet too long.
I want to be a good luck seed
Doing nothing in somebody’s pocket.       10

Or some ordinary little stone
On the way to becoming an earring.
Or just lying there unknown
Among a crowd of other ordinary stones.

I want to give up being a bullet          15
I’ve been a bullet too long.

The question is
Can you give up being a killer?

I draw these secret lands,

And get my hair all sticky               15

And paint on both my hands.
I paint these lovely pictures

In thick green drippy paint

That gets all on the carpet

And makes the cleaners faint.     20

But none of them will ever know

The colour of my dreams.

POEM
Emotional Poetry

Choose a human emotion such as fear, hate,
sadness, happiness or surprise.
Write down all the words you can think of
about this emotion in the box below.
Now read the following examples of emotional poetry.




Fear
Fear is black.
It tastes like cold congee.
It smells mouldy and damp.
Fear looks like a dark lonely street.
It sounds like the wind howling at night.
Fear is horrible.
Happiness
Happiness is bright yellow.

It tastes of fresh lemons.

Happiness is the smell of freshly baked bread

Or a garden full of flowers.

Happiness sounds like laughing and singing.

Happiness is fun.
Both these poems use the senses to describe the
emotion. Now you choose an emotion and write a
poem that answers these questions.


•What colour is the emotion?
•What does it taste like?
•What does it smell like?
•What does it look like?
•What does it sound like?
Onomatopoeia
Onomatopoeia is a difficult word for a very simple
idea. It means when a word sounds like the noise of
the thing or action it is describing. Look at these
examples:


•The bees buzzed around the flowers.
•I heard a loud bang when the man fired his gun.
•The man dived into the swimming pool with a
splash.
Now read this poem:

                Animal Chorus

              The cat went meow
            And the cow went moo
              The dog went woof
             The duck went quack
            And the rooster went
              Cock-a-doodle-doo
The noises that the animals make are all examples of
onomatopoeia. Match the following phrases to the
onomatopoeia that describes them.
The sound of …………………..
                                   Onomatopoeia
A gun being fired      •
                                   • purr
A happy cat            •           • woo
An unhappy cat         •           • click
A window breaking      •           • bang
A light switch being    •          • meow
turned on
                                   • smash
The wind blowing in a      •
typhoon
Onomatopoeia is also found in many comic
books. For example:

     Wham!                Bang!
Write your own comic strip in the
frames below.
Tongue Twisters
The poem below is an example of a tongue twister. The
writer uses alliteration to make the poem difficult to say.

Bitter Butter


Betty Botter bought some butter,
But, she said, this butter’s bitter:
If I put it in my batter,
It will make my batter bitter,
But a bit of better butter
Will make my batter better.
So she bought a bit of butter

Better than her bitter butter,

And she put it in her batter,

And it made her batter better,

So it was better Betty Botter

Bought a bit of better butter.
Here are some more tongue twisters.

1. Peter Piper picked a peck of pickled pepper.
2. She sells sea shells on the sea shore.
3. Catherine’s coconut cookies caused Colin’s cough.

Try and write your own tongue twisters starting
with the following words.

E.g.
David’s dog danced dangerously downstairs.
Susan suddenly saw six silly soldiers.

They never stop to ask me why.
    She’s shy
    They say                           5
    She’s shy
Or if we’re leaving someone’s house,
They say I’m quiet as a mouse
When I forget to say goodbye.
    She’s shy                          10
    They say
    She’s shy
Cat’s got her tongue, they always say,
She often does clam up this way,
She’s silent as a stone today.           15
    She’s shy
    They say
    She’s shy
I am not shy – or if I am
I’m not a mouse or stone or clam.        20

                  THE SEA


The sea is a hungry dog,
Giant and grey.
He rolls on the beach all day.
With his clashing teeth and shaggy jaws
Hour upon hour he gnaws                   5
The rumbling, tumbling stones,
And ‘Bones, bones, bones, bones!’
The giant sea-dog moans,
Licking his greasy paws.
And when the night wind roars                  10
And the moon rocks in the stormy cloud,
He bounds to his feet and snuffs and sniffs,
Shaking his wet sides over the cliffs,
And howls and hollos long and loud.
But on quiet days in May or June,              15
When even the grasses on the dune
Play no more their reedy tune,
With his head between his paws
He lies on the sandy shores,
So quiet, so quiet, he scarcely snores.        20
