Colours
Age 11

Red is the colour of anger,
welling up inside of me.
Orange is the colour of fun,
and all my happy energy.
Yellow is the colour of the sun,
which makes me feel happy and warm.
Green is the colour of giggles and laughts,
midnight feasts in a boarding school dorm'.
Blue is the colour of calm and cool,
like swimming in a summer pool.
Purple is the colour of arty ideas,
crayons and pencils and paint.
Pink is the colour of blushing and happy,
love and kisses and all stuff that's sappy.
Colours describe how we feel every day,
so listen to colours.
They'll help you find your way.

Nature

(A series of Haikus)

TREES
The majestic oak,
to the little bonsai tree,
It is all nature.

FLOWERS
The large sunflower,
to the small forget-me-not,
It is all nature.

WEATHER
The shining sunlight,
to the torrential raining,
It is all nature.

ANIMALS
The huge elephant,
to the tiny dung-beetle,
It is all nature.
