Poems

Have a read of some of our amazing poems based on 'The Sound Collector' by Robert McGough.

 

The crunching of the leaves

The splatting of the rain

When you go near a drain

You can hear the splashing of the rain again

 

The howling of the wind

The swishing of the trees

Always beware

There might be bees

 

Christopher

 

The swishing of the trees

The tweeting of the bird

The splashing of the rain

The screaming of the children

The squeaking of the squirrel

 

Phoebe

 

The sploshing of the rain

The tweeting of the bird

The screaming of the kids

That’s simply absurd

 

The crunching of the leaves

The swishing of the trees

The squeaking of the squirrel

As it starts to sneeze

 

Joshua

 

The tweeting of the birds

The splashing of the rain

The crunching of the leaves

The swishing of the trees
