Weta workshop poem

Living in the bush              
The weta right at home
Waiting for the dark
The great ground weta
In his comfortable home
king of the insects
Five different types
A big prehistoric group   
They’re all together
in the undergrowth
hunting for fruit,leaves,flowers

His life is complete.

Poem in te reo Maori
Noho i roto i te ngahere
Ko te tika weta i te kāinga
Tatari hoki te pouri
Te weta whenua nui
I roto i tona whare whakamarie
kingi o nga pepeke
E rima ngā momo rerekē

He rōpū onamata nui
kei tahi katoa ratou
i roto i te tihi
hopu mo te hua, rau, puawai
He oti tona ora.

Scale factor

My poem

Kieran’s Poem

Lining up to the starting line.      

Getting ready to run.                     
Waiting for the gun.                    
Suddenly the gun fires I sprint away.
Leaving everyone behind.                     
Not a footprint insight.                              
No one catches me.                                
While I run like lighting.                           
I'm as quick as a flash.                                     
I cross the finish line with excitement
the crowd cheers me on
as I lift up the trophy with pride.
I had made my family
so happy
I had the best time of my life.
