Encouraging links between students and school staff around the globe
She tumbles from the jumble of rocks
High up in the sky-brushing,
Eye-rushing wonder of mountainous might –
The sea is in her sights.
She starts her journey, falling from
The top bunk and clothing herself in sparkles
Before crashing through a daylight door
And dashing along in a busy zigzag.
Writing tips from Dave – follow the rules or break the rules – you’ll have a poem either way:
· This opener is written in free verse, so you don’t have to worry too much about the line length or rhythm and rhyme
· What I’ve suggested in the opener is that the waterfall is like a person who is leaving her house for the day and heading off on a journey to the sea – if you can fit in with that theme, it’d make the final poem stronger I think
