Pedrum writes, “The first poem I chose was “Haiku” by Mike Jubb. I liked this poem because it was short and easy to remember. The second poem i chose was “First Bra” by Clare Bevan. I chose this poem because i found it amusing. :)”
Georgina carries the poem “The Lesson” by Edward Lucie-Smith.
You can read the text of the poem here.
Kelly writes, “I have picked the poem “If” by Rudyard Kipling this is because it is different from other poems i’ve ever read before.”
“If you can dream – and not make dreams your master;
If you can think – and not make thoughts your aim;”
Carla carries “To a Mouse,” by Robert Burns. She writes, “I chose the first verse of this poem because I have heard it a lot and I know it well.
“Wee, sleeket, cowran, tim’rous beastie,
O, what panic’s in thy breastie!”
