Cross Country Poem
WALT use poetic verse to recount an event we participated in.
The cross country was usual enough ; it had the
people, the clear blue sky, lushest green grass, the teachers,
and even thousands of multi coloured cones.
My friends, my classmates and I did what kids do
we happily ran inside of the cones, kids tripping over
heavy grey stones.
My friends and I are panting and stumbling our way to the finish
line. I finally passed the flags, but sadly I ended up in the sickbay
I was doing a victory dance that I finally completed cross country.
Based on the poem "The Church" by James K Baxter
