Sixth Class used a poetry app on the iPod Touches to create poems about disastrous weather conditions.
We have been studying hurricanes, typoons, tornadoes, blizzards, floods and storms in Geography.
We each chose a weather force and wrote a poem about it.
By Emer H By Oisin S
Swirls all around Forms in the east
Lies on the ground Comes in from over the sea
On top of a post. Destroys cities.
Crunching dry toast Hurricanes and cyclones
Ice in the freezer Rips up houses
A broken, cold lever Destroys everything in its path
Falling Flattening all obstacles
Covers everything in a white blanket. Brings only pain & destruction.
By Claire Mc By Caoimhe
Starts in the sky Sucks things off the ground
Making its way down Sweeps across the land
Hits the ground. Takes its prey.
A flashing bulb An evil cheetah
Clouds quickly covering the sun Swirls like a whirlpool
Blinds opening and closing Loud as an elephant
Before your eyes. Like a dealy drumroll.
Freezes in the clouds
Falls slowly through the air
Drops gently to the ground.
A white blanket
a dusting of sugar
A coating of ice cream.
Covering everything it can.
