I Like

So, what do YOU like?  Write down 5 things to discuss

I like the taste of sweet chocolate that melts on the tongue
And the signs in our world that say spring has now sprung.
     I like birds in the treetops who whistle and sing
     And cool air on my face when I swing on my swing.

I like cosy warm fires when, in winter, it’s cold
And I like lots of people - the young and the old.
     I like children for they always cause me to laugh –
     And all kinds of animals from mice to giraffes.

I like birthdays and Christmas and days which are fun;
Days at the seaside in the sea and the sun.
     I like writing my poems especially for you
     And hope that you all enjoy reading them too.

I like days with my children and much more it’s true.
I like so many things, and I’m sure you do too.
So what things do you like which perhaps I have missed?
   Get your pencil and paper and make out a list.
