In English, we read a poem similar to this. My teacher wanted us to make our own version of it. It was pretty fun, actually. And very easy, since no rhyming or rhythm was really required... but I managed to sneak in a few rhymes. Not particularly inredible, but a few people liked it so I decided to post.
Ten points if you identify all the little references!
I am from porcelain dolls,
from Play-Doh and bubbles.
I am from dry leaves and thick mud.
(There were spiders there
and glossy beetles.)
I am from the vines snaking the fence,the slender black dog
whose barks would pierce when we did play...
Silly string everywhere.
I am from Cuties and shorts under dresses,
from Kerry and Kay.
I'm from elementary Crushes
and elementary Hushes,
from clean up and calm down.I'm from Sugar Rabbit, Sweethang, and Isabel
with Alice, Stephen, Boots, and Freddie
with Alex, Jessica, Pig and Chum-Chum -
I am from Paul, John, Ringo, and George,
from Freddie, who wants to break free.
I am from Miss Vida, Noxeema and Chi-Chi,
from Kent Mansley, who works for the government.
On my shelf, rows of titles
all watched –
or to be watched -
and recorded again -
All home-movies of that wonderful When.
