Yesterday, we wrote a poem about the things we missed. Today, we are going to write a poem about all of the things we used to do regularly, that we wish we could do again. Have a read of pages 12 and 13 of the poetry booklet.
The author of this poem has compared big fancy wishes to regular things that he really misses. He has also used adjectives, verbs, metaphors and similes to make his poem really interesting for the reader. Rather than saying " I don't need to be on an island but I do wish I was walking along the canal" he has said " I don’t need to be on Caribbean island with turquoise seas but I do wish that I was walking along the canal path in Stroud, where a kingfisher zips by in a sudden electric blue fizz, a fistful of feathered energy."
Have a go at writing your own wish poem. Try to use adjectives, verbs, similes and metaphors if you can.
