Transcript of Poetry Grade 6

Limericks Page ONE in your Poetry Anthology! Tongue Twisters! • Red lorry, yellow lorry. • Which wristwatches are Swiss wristwatches? Poetry! • Unique New York. • Many an anemone sees an enemy anemone. • Freshly-fried flying fish. Betty Botter had some butter,
"But," she said, "this butter's bitter.
If I bake this bitter butter,
It would make my batter bitter.
But a bit of better butter,
That would make my batter better."
So she bought a bit of butter –
Better than her bitter butter –
And she baked it in her batter;
And the batter was not bitter.
So 'twas better Betty Botter
Bought a bit of better butter. A big black bear bit a big black bug
and the big black bug bled black blood. Spoonerisms 'Whaterisms?' Spoonerisms are words or phrases in which letters or syllables get swapped. This often happens accidentally in slips of the tongue - or 'tips of the slung' as Spoonerisms are often affectionately called! Examples of
Spoonerisms • Cat flap (Flat cap) •Chewing the doors (Doing the chores) • Bad salad (Sad ballad) • Trim your snow tail (Trim your toe nails) wave the sails - save the whales
chipping the flannel on TV - flipping the channel on TV
mad bunny - bad money
I'm shout of the hour - I'm out of the shower
this is the pun fart - this is the fun part
flutter by - butterfly
bedding wells - wedding bells
I must mend the sail - I must send the mail
my zips are lipped - my lips are zipped
bat flattery - flat battery
would you like a nasal hut? - would you like a hazel nut?
puke on - coupon
belly jeans - jelly beans
eye ball - bye all
fight in your race - right in your face
ready as a stock - steady as a rock
no tails - toe nails
hiss and lear - listen here
soul of ballad - bowl of salad Creating a tongue twister 1. Choose a spoonerism or come up with your own example. 2. Say it out loud
and try to come up with
a second line. Try to say both lines together
as quickly as you can.

Swap books with your neighbour
and try to say their tongue twister
out loud as fast as you can. Add more lines
to your tongue
twister and say it
out loud again. Table of Contents: Page 1: Limerick
Page 2: Tongue Twister
Page 3: Sad I Am Sad I Am What is it? A poem that makes you realise that without certain features, some objects, animals or people would not live up to their full potential. I am...
A pencil without lead,
A person without a bed,
Colours with no red.

I am...
A body without a soul,
A well with no hole,
Football without goals.

I am...
A shoe without a lace,
Treasure without a trace,
A lady without grace. Think about your own
ideas for a Sad I Am poem.

Remember to look at the rhyme


You are going to write out 4 verses! Personification Poems What is personification?

for the following: 1. A cloud
2. A river
3. A book
4. A palm tree
5. Waves
6. A storm Create your own 'What am I?'
personification poem Sylvia Plath.
I am silver and exact.
I have no preconceptions.
Whatever I see I swallow immediately
Just as it is, unmisted by love or dislike.
I am not cruel, only truthful. Begin with 'I am' Your poem should be 5 lines.
It does not have to rhyme! An ambitious young fellow named Matt
Tried to parachute using his hat.
Folks below looked so small
As he started to fall,
Then got bigger and bigger and SPLAT!
Graham Lester A circus performer named Brian
Once smiled as he rode on a lion.
They came back from the ride,
But with Brian inside,
And the smile on the face of the lion.
Anonymous There was a young fellow named Flynn
Who was really remarkably thin.
When he carried a pole
People said, “Bless my soul!
What a shock to find out you’ve a twin.”
