Words and images are very powerful; they can be used to describe things that come from fantasy and our imagination, but can also capture the ordinary, day-to-day aspects of life. This poem looks at how something as simple as the weather can impact our lives – and even inspire us.
Rooftop garden is where we’re at,
On damp benches, classmates all sat.
Drip-drop...drip-drop...we feel the drizzle,
Wetting our pieces of paper, we loathe the mizzle.
‘Creating quatrains on a rainy day?’ I grumble!
The pencil between my fingers is going to crumble.
We are exhausted, schoolwork is to blame...
Give us a break, we want a game!
‘We are puzzled!’ Justin writes,
Mr Chan gives us some insights,
We stroll along to think of rhymes,
To and fro, I forget for how many times.
The bell rings, it’s time for lunch,
We dash to the tuck shop to have a munch.
It’s finally the end of a day’s agony,
I want my friends for company!
