WALT: using metaphors in a list poem
Out of the window – eye spy
We've all spent a lot of time looking out of the window over the last few months. After a while, I have started to notice things that I had not really seen before. I have two robins who live in the garden but they don't like each other. There is the scruffy robin and the well-kept robin. They argue.
I thought I would write a list poem about the things that I can see out of the window that interest me. To make the poem more interesting, I chose secret things that I think no one else would spot unless they had spent a lot of time looking! This sort of poem is another list poem but it is about real things. I called it eye spy because of the old game.
Listen to an audio recording of the poem below here: https://soundcloud.com/talkforwriting/i-spy/s-WajErv4pAk5
6 things that eye spy
Eye spy a shadow shifting by the Buddleia butterfly bush.
Eye spy sunlight slicing through the fencing.
Eye spy the way buses shudder as they pull up at the bus stop.
Eye spy John the postman’s footsteps as he paces Silver Street.
Eye spy the tiniest red money spiders crazily wandering on the red brick wall.
Eye spy the rusted sign on Sharky’s Chippie creak and squeak when the wind blows.
Notice how I have named things . Complete the spaces in these sentences, checking how I named each item.
The first is done for you:
I didn’t write ‘bush’, I wrote ‘Buddleia butterfly bush’.
I didn’t write ‘the postman’, I wrote ………………………….
I didn’t write ‘the road’, I wrote ……………………………..
I didn’t write ‘spiders’, I wrote ………………………………..
I didn’t write ‘the chip shop’, I wrote ………………………..
When you are writing, you can make things sound more real and build the picture for the reader by naming things .
Writing tip: Try to name things so don't write about a flower but name it, e.g. a poppy, daisy or rose. Naming things helps the reader to see what you are writing about. You are trying to notice details, bring them alive for the reader and make them sound real.
Do this at the back of your book as we always do. Take your time and do one line of each word.
