The Rio Poem:


One by one a drink is spilled
Making everyone still
As if someone was eating my friend bill
I wake up from my dream 
to hear a loud scream
We land down in Rio
With many people protesting
I feel that I might be one them
Stuck in a beautiful City

Hi Pote!
I really like your poem. I think it is more creative and interesting than my poem. Great job on it. Keep it up.

Rachel Williamson said...

Hmm, Pote. This is a very stirring poem! As I was reading it I felt like I was on the airplane with you. It sounds to me as though you would prefer not to go to Rio. Did I interpret your poem correctly?

Cheers, Rachel

Hello Pote, your poem is really creative. It looks like you are good at making up poems. Keep on working hard.

Hi Pote,

I really enjoyed your poem you showed not tell and thats what made it so interesting. If felt like I was there with you. I really like the picture you chose. Great work.

Hi Pote

I would agree with Rachel but despite all that you have made a good creative poem with show not tell like how Nesi said.

Hey Pote,
think this is Haiku. Am I correct? Anyway, you have done really well with words, except maybe for the part about you're friend Bill. Maybe you should change to something more... nicer.
Keep it up,

Hehe, Pote, I think that Thomas has made a good point about your friend 'Bill' in the poem. The poor guy - no one wants to be eaten! I like the way that Thomas suggested that you could modify the poem by adding something nicer. Hmmm, what could you add instead of a reference to eating Bill? What about changing the word 'Bill' to a food like 'dill' or an item like a 'pill.' Would that work?

Keep up the great work. I find your posts really entertaining!

Rachel :)

Hi Pote,

I'm a bit late to the party but goodness, this is a lot of comments! You've really engaged other students to comment on your poem. To reply to Thomas, who asked if it was a haiku - it's unlikely that this is a haiku for the poem is more than three lines and the syllables are longer than what's needed in a haiku. It's kinda like this:

Dude, this poem's sweet
That bit about protesting
Pretty topical

There we go.
