Poem of the Day
Before reading today's poem, have a look at the lovely poem written by Amelia in Magpie class!
Well done Amelia!
by Edward Lear
They went to sea in a Sieve, they did,
In a Sieve they went to sea:
In spite of all their friends could say,
On a winter’s morn, on a stormy day,
In a Sieve they went to sea!
And when the Sieve turned round and round,
And every one cried, ‘You’ll all be drowned!’
They called aloud, ‘Our Sieve ain’t big,
But we don’t care a button! We don’t care a fig!
In a Sieve we’ll go to sea!’
Far and few, far and few,
Are the lands where the Jumblies live;
Their heads are green, and their hands are blue,
And they went to sea in a Sieve.
Ideas for this poem:
- Draw a picture of what the Jumblies might look like.
- This is a nonsense poem. Can you write your own?
- A sieve is used to strain water - so it wouldn't be a very good boat! Can you think of any other items that would be terrible at transporting you around?
