Ideas for Your Poems

By Josie Whitehead


BECAUSE OF . . .  

By Josie Whitehead

Because of . . .

Because of the wind, the washing blew dry.
Because of their wings, birds fly in the sky.
    Because of the sun, the fruit became ripe.
But because of what reason do zebras have stripes?

Because of the autumn, the leaves all turned gold.
Because of the cold wind, we shivered with cold.
     Because there’s no clouds, the sky is quite blue
     And because I like writing, I wrote this for you.

Where do you get your ideas for your poems?  Anywhere.  Listen for two words and write a poem based on that.  I have.  Teachers and children must have liked this poem as they chose it for publication in 2010.  I hope you like it too.  Josie
