Look at the train!

Look at the train
Look at the train
Look at the train,
the train, the train!

Rattling by
Clackety-clack
at the back of the houses
up on the track.

Flickety-flick
Clickety-click
into the city
quicker than quick.

Over the bridge
And under the river
rocketing on
for ever and ever.

Don't look at the wind
Don't look at the train
Just look at the train,
the train, the train!

Why not try...
  • Writing your own poems with a transport theme. Try to use onomatopoeia to capture the sounds and rhythm of the mode of transport.
