World Book Day

Fantastic to come back to Sea View School in South Shields for another book day. I recognised one of you from the book club evening last summer!

We didn’t tell stories this time, we wrote dragon poems. The sort that don’t rhyme. We gathered together a “bank” of words to describe all the different parts of the dragons and then pulled out the ones we really liked to make into a poem.

Some of you were brave enough to read yours out – brilliant. I know others would have liked to, but there’s never enough time to do everything we want.

Here is the one I put together as an example:

There’s nothing like a dragon:
mauve-grey scales
glittering, glistening
enormous wings
unfurled like umbrellas
lacy
bony
veins like black net.
Huge frightening dragons
with claws like daggers
sharp, smooth, cold.
Belching smoke and fire
and wanting to play with me.

We (that is, Kelsey Drake, two of us) wrote some special poems called acrostics a while ago, using the words Dragon and Morris. You can find them here.

If you can do one with the word Scordril, put it in the comment box underneath. We’d love to read them.

  1. Hi Kelseydrake,

    I saw your posting on the other side of the website and visited your very own site. Your article is brilliant about the dragons. How I wish I can take your quiz about the dragons. i have a lot of things in mind about them. It is one of my favorite movies, seeing dragons and castle battles of ancient days. I supposed to collect many of those movies in back days but had stop for a year now.

    They speak also of power in our days. The “Dragons of the Empire”, the collector of all wealth.. LOLs…
