Poem - the Poem-em

Now Hobbits can be fond of words  

And tell tales all the time  

But what I'd really like to see  

Are hobbits writing rhymes!  


So listen to this poem here  

It teaches things to you

And by the time the poem's done

You'll write your own ones too!


Before you start to think of words

And writing verses out

You firstly have to pick a theme

What will it be about?


And will it be a funny work

Or serious or sad?

Or maybe one with heroes in

Or one to make you glad?


One featuring our Shire home

Should brighten up your mood

But personally my favourites

Are poems praising food!


Now take a quill and paper sheet

And write out words that rhyme

For poems will have rhyming words

Although a good few don't


This little poem that I tell

It has a simple rhyme

There's just one pair of matching words

The fourth and second lines


The poem has a rhythm too

It's like a beating drum

A simple beat will work quite well

da-dum da-dum da-dum


It's time to start your poem now

So write out all those lines

The words should flow quite naturally

It shouldn't take much time!


And once your poem is complete

There's one more thing to do

Is find a group of hobbit folk

To read your poem to


So, everybody here today

Your poems should be heard

It’s good to share with everyone

The wonder of your words!
