Colour Poem


My son’s Grade 4 class is doing a unit on poetry right now.

In the past couple of weeks, he has been asked to write a few different styles of poems.

I thought I would share his colour poem, because I think it is lovely.

Colour Poem

Green is the colour of the grass and the trees

Green is one of the colours in the rainbow

Green is a peaceful colour

Green is full of life

Green smells like a lime lollipop

Green tastes like a sour green apple

Green sounds like wind rustling through the grass

Green looks like a big soccer field

Green makes me feel happy

Green is my dad`s favourite colour

    1. They certainly have a different way of looking at things, like everything is new, don't they? Thanks Maria.

    1. Thanks Wendy! It's nice when they think happy thoughts. (Rather than complaining ;)
