Listen and read the poem from our class poet Joseph Coelho. Then create your own 'I am a _______' poem. It could be called 'I am a child' or 'I am a footballer' or 'I am a dancer' or 'I am a gamer' or 'I am an artist' or 'I am the pain in mums neck' or anything else that you want or that you think defines you.

Use the same format as Joseph does begin each 2 line verse with 'I am the' and the second lines mainly with 'because I'


I am a writer

Poem from Werewolf Club Rules by Joseph Coelho


I am the clash and collide of the stars
because I create worlds.


I am the awareness of the trees
because I hear the wind.


I am the sweat of a rainbow
because I refract all the colours.


I am the blood in a pen
because I ink arteries.


I am the blade in a sharpener
because I make nibs vanish.


I am the edge of a rubber,
rounded, worn and softened by mistakes.


I am the conversation of notes,
discussing melodies.


I am the holes in a flute,
knower of unknown tunes.


I am the skin of a drum.
Every hit, beat and bang
bouncing off me,
forming music from nothing

Joseph Coelho - I am a writer
