Performance poems – Jasmine

This week we have been creating our own performance poems based on animals. We read a poem called ‘The song of the eagle’ and used it as an inspiration for our writing. We tried to use powerful verbs, similes and metaphors in our poetry. Here’s Jasmine’s:

Butterfly

She flutters around the sky

Like she owns the land

Sitting on a flower

Confused by the rain.

Dancing around the sky,

Wings are rainbows,

Flapping in the evening sunlight.

Showing them off to the world

As the sun goes down

And the moon comes out

She lies ready to sleep

Dancing around the sky,

Wings are rainbows,

Flapping in the evening sunlight.

Showing them off to the world

As light as a feather

She floats through the morning air

Like a single leaf falling through the atmosphere

Her flimsy wings flutter

And her slender body swirls

She’s an outstanding beauty in the air

Everything a bare pure beauty.

Dancing around the sky,

Wings are rainbows,

Flapping in the evening sunlight.

Showing them off to the world

The most beautiful butterfly I’ve ever seen.
