For my class homework, we had to memorise or read a poem to the class! I could not decide which poem to say --Trees (by Joyce Kilmer) or Dreams (by Langston Hughes), --but in the end I chose Trees.
Three children from each class got chosen to go to the finals. From my class, I was one of the three that were chosen. We had to say the exact same poem as what we had recited in class before ( for me I had to say Trees) and one person would win from each class and I WON from my class! I did really like the poems that my other two classmates performed. I thought they did great, too.
I felt really nervous while waiting for my turn to perform. I had a thousand million butterflies in my stomach! I really wanted to win. When I found out I'd won, I was really happy and excited to find out what my prize was.
I got a book called Pumpkin Grumkin as my prize. In this post I am going to share a poem from that book with you (see below)!

A Sense-less Poem
By Carey Blyton
I'm having trouble with my ears-
They do not see so well.
My eyes are also failing fast-
They've lost their sence of smell.
My nose has lost its power of speech.
My tongue, its sense of touch.
Alas, your sympathy is in vain-
My hands can't hear you so much.
I really like funny poems like Ken Nesbitt's poems, because they're silly and they make me laugh. What kind of poems do you like?
Me, Zoe Self
