Earth(a poem for four year old kids)
January 11, 2009 § 12 Comments
Someone I know who is doing a Montessori course,asked me to write a poem for “four year old,in not more than five lines.” And by far this is one of the toughest things I have done.It was fun trying to think like a four year old.At four,you know more and you are aware of things around you more.But I can’t remember much what I felt about earth,when I was a four year old.I am more sure of what I felt when I was a six year old.
Geography has always been a fascination to me,so has history(people still wonder,how I managed to ask “doubts” i.e. questions in history class),well so much for five lines.The hardest part,was keeping it within five lines,especially doing it with what possibly might be the vocabulary of a four year old(truthfully,my English was nothing to write home about,until tenth standard,I started writing poetry more often and got interested in improving my language). So tell me what you think.Here goes:-
Earth is a round ball-
A small rock near a big hot star,
Round with blue , brown and green.
Twinkling little stars and moon can be seen-
Here there is lots to play and see!
P.S:- Those of you who have a “kid” at home,tell me what they think about the poem 😛
