Examples of Poetry P4/5

THE LITTLE TREE THINKS
I'm next!
Waiting in fear
for the bulldozer's bite
and chainsaw's silver teeth of death
Save me
(an example of Cinquain poetry)

TREE SPELL
Wake up sleeping tree
Get dressed quickly in new green
Spring knocks at your door.

TREES TALKING AT NIGHT
When darkness takes hold
Listen to the trees talking
Sharing their secrets
(examples of Haiku poetry)

Earth shaker
Bark ripper
Tree cruncher
Root puller
Branch biter
Twig snapper
Leaf snatcher
Seed eater
Log breaker
Tree feller
BULLDOZER!
(an example of Kenning poetry)

She stares from the tree
When darkness falls, old viened hands
Stretch out to grasp me
Green eyes gleam through matted hair
Grinning her broken toothed smile
(an example of Tanka poetry)
