that's half a young cat's life

 

Poem

One two three,
you can dance like me.

With arms held high
that's how you start,
let deh music touch your heart.

One two three,
you can dance like me.

humming a tune,
happy in June
(when flowers
and roses bloom)
sipping nectar
its favourite food,
loved also by bees.

They batted,
Bowled,
Padded up
And ratcheted up the score.
She crouched behind the stumps

Poem

Look at the train
Look at the train

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

Poem

Up and down, up and down, go their knobbly pink knees;

Poem

In the line you hear a chatter.
Up and down a clatter, clatter.
Noisy schoolgirls scream and shout,
pushing in and pushing out.
