AN ELEPHANT AND A MOUSE IN BRISTOL

Thanks to Bristol Foyles for inviting me in as part of their Storybox summer of events. Some of the children were feeling loud and some of the children were feeling quiet. So this is the poem we all came up with:

 

ELEPHANT AND MOUSE

Louder than an elephant stomping!
Louder than an ambulance zooming!
Louder than a whole skyscraper falling down!
Louder than a lion’s roar!


Quieter than a mouse squeaking.
Quieter than a worm in the soil.
Quieter than a hedgehog sleeping.
Quieter than a book waiting for someone to read it.


By children at Foyles, Cabot Circus, Bristol writing with Sean Taylor, July 2016.
