I'm taking part in fellow poet Jackie Hosking's 'blog tour' of Australian Children's Poets who have work published in The School Magazine.
My piece, 'Drummer on the Roof', appeared in The School Magazine - Countdown Issue no.7, August 2013.
Drummer on the Roof
Clouds cluster, thunder rumbles
Clouds muster, raindrops tumble
Ping, patter, ring, ding, clatter
Sudden syncopated splatter
Matt Ottley's illustration for my poem makes me want to stay cosy and dry inside!
To view the other wonderful poets taking part in the blog tour, including of course Jackie herself, visit Jackie's great site: Pass It On. The diversity in both poetry and accompanying illustrations is inspiring.
