Emilie's voice:

"I found out that that I like free verse poetry when we read a poem about a roller coaster ride. Then I had a fantastic idea to write my own poem about going to my friend's house on my bike. I thought about what words go with a bike, the sounds I hear, and how it feels. We also talked about metaphors and similes, and I thought a cat was a good metaphor because it is my favourite animal and because cats are very fast."

The Bike Ride

By Emilie (9)

Pedal

Pedal

Slow and smooth.

Woosh!

I am a cat

dashing down the hill.

No one can catch me.

Turn!

Swoosh!

Unsure...

Will I fall?

Up,

Up,

Up.

Waiting.

Still waiting.

Finally!

Woosh!

Away we go.
