6/10/16 Poetry - Tony Walsh, Longfella Poet http://longfella.co.uk

Note from Tony - “Notice the pattern of the opening lines and try to follow it.

There are three rhyming lines of equal length to each verse and then a fourth line which is the same every time - 

"This is my message to you"

The final verse could then be the message or there could be a message in each verse. What would your message be? A thank you perhaps? If you decide this at the beginning then you should have plenty of ideas. Make a list before you start to try and make them rhyme. I hope that you have fun writing a poem or two of your own in this style.  Good luck!”

 

To the playground full of slides and rides and swings

The blackbird and the pretty song she sings

The treat box filled with icky sticky things 

This is my message to you

To the seaside where we paddle in the sun

To the busy streets where the festivals’ begun

You’re my sweet, loving number one

This is my message to you

                                 

To the park where the children play all day

To the melody the musicians play

Forever and ever and always

This is my message to you

 

To the orchard, as cows are raised

Sitting, shaded, relaxed, and lazed

The sky silver with the summer haze

This is my message to you

 

To the sun’s beautiful, blinding gleam

It isn’t as it always seems

The majestic, brave, and battle scarred king

This is my message to you

 

The secret place we only know

The way you love to make a show

If you are there, I’d love to go

This is my message to you

 

And when we get there, you will see

What you really mean to me

Because that is my message: we

Will love each other endlessly.

To the park we go in the daylight

To the trees we go to in the midnight

The sun rising up in the twilight

This is my message to you

 

To the path we walk everyday to school

The girls in school that are so cool

The cool water that fills up my pool

This is my message to you

 

To the ice cream we eat in the summer

To every bite I eat my heart gets warmer

To my friends that make my life sweeter

This is my message to you

To the snowflakes floating down

To the happiness of the town

Until all the snow are at meltdown

This is my message to you

 

To the jokes that we laughed at

To our very, very long chats

Oh, how I love that

This is my message to you

 

We were the best pair ever

We’ve never had an argument, never

We belong together forever

This is my message to you

 

To the memories that we had

I know they made you glad

Please be with me, you never make me sad

This is my message to you

 

The part you’ve been waiting for

I love you evermore

Like no one before

This is my message to you x

To the seaside where we paddle in the sun,

The bucket and spade lead us all to fun

The teenagers are older so they run

This is my message to you.

 

To the autumn holidays we always had,

The family together we’re just mad

The warm fire makes us cosy and glad

This is my message to you.

 

To the crazy board games we all used to play,

The tragic day Grandad went away

The time I wished he would stay one more day

This is my message to you.

 

To the winter nights where we all huddled near,

The Christmas letters we write, start with dear

The snow that falls says: Santa’s here this year

This is my message to you.

 

To the daffodils that come out this time,

The Easter Bunny would not commit crime

The time when you and I did a great mime!

This is my message to you.

 

You are no longer with me now but,

I love you mum and dad

That was my message to you.

The night was not very bright
It was Spooky that night
Everyone got a fright
This is my message to you.

The full moon was out.
You could hear the wolves shout.
Every child was out and about
This is my message to you.

We've got lots of candy
Our broomsticks were very handy.
The woman at the door was called Mandy.
This is my message to you.

Our costumes were great
Me and my mate
Sat and ate
This is my message to you.
