Poem

This week for writing the task was to first read and then somewhat replicate it using 5 different words for a chosen word out of run, big, small and pretty. After that our other tasks were to figure out the joke at the bottom of the original, find five synonyms for nice that aren't in the original poem and to list the literary devices used in the poem.

Original:
Never use the word NICE, our teacher said.
It doesn’t mean a thing!
Try…beautiful, shining, delicious,
shimmering, hopeful, auspicious,
attractive, unusual, nutritious –
the choice is as long as a string!
But please, never use the word NICE,
it just doesn’t mean a thing!


(She’s nice our teacher.)


Our version:
Never use the word RUN, our teacher said.
It doesn't mean a thing
Try… Dart, Dash, Drop,
Scuttle, Scatter, Sprint
Tear, Trot, Trample -
The choice is as long as a string!
But please, don’t use the word RUN,

It just doesn’t mean a thing!
