for Sadje’s What Do You See? prompt where the picture is by Ben White.
I’ve written this story around a poem I wrote for my granddaughter. I’m sure she won’t mind me using it!
See if you can read this poem.
It’s very long.
No, it’s not, off you go.
Pigs grunt, cows moo, frogs cr…cr…
…croak, doves coo… What’s coo?
It’s the noise they make, coo,coo. Carry on.
Sheep baa, birds sing… No, they don’t, they whistle.
They whistle songs!
Bees buzz, wasps sting… I don’t like wasps, they’re scary.
Nor do I! Keep going
Ducks quack, cocks crow, mice speak…
…squeak, winds blow.
You’re doing well. I said you could do it!
Branches wave, screams…streams run, clouds float, past the sun… I’ve nearly finished!
Yes, one verse to go!
Swans gl…glide, fishes dart, ponies canter, bulls… I CAN’T SAY THAT, it’s a rude word!
Yes, you can!
Mummy will tell me off!
She won’t hear you.
Okay… Bulls FART!
