Poetry in Year 4

Daddy Fell into the Pond.

Everyone grumbled. The sky was grey. 

We had nothing to do and nothing to say. 

We were nearing the end of a dismal day, 

And there seemed to be nothing beyond, 

THEN 

Daddy fell into the pond! 



And everyone's face grew merry and bright, 

And Timothy danced for sheer delight. 

"Give me the camera, quick, oh quick! 

He's crawling out of the duckweed." 

Click! 



Then the gardener suddenly slapped his knee, 

And doubled up, shaking silently, 

And the ducks all quacked as if they were daft 

And is sounded as if the old drake laughed. 



O, there wasn't a thing that didn't respond 

WHEN 

Daddy fell into the pond! 

by Alfred Noyes



We looked at this poem in class and tried to add our own adjectives and similes.
