Congratulations Year 4 Kestrels Class for your fantastic poem, winning the World Poetry Day contest organised across all the White Horse Federation Primaries.
Here is the winning poem:
That Hydra they said, was green as green as green
as green as emeralds, ivy leaves, a cushion of slimy moss;
that Hydra, they said hunts and hunts and hunts,
like a vicious vampire or a stealthy snake slithering
that Hydra they said, was grotesque so grotesque so grotesque
more grotesque than a terrifying tarantula or monstrous Demogorgon.
That Hydra they said, was ferocious, extremely ferocious
As ferocious as Cetus piercing the body of a whale.
In Ancient Greece, it killed, crazily, crazily, crazily
as crazily as a rampaging rhino or a dragon breathing scorching hot fire.
That Hydra they said, had nine deadly, venomous heads,
spinning, swerving, “You will perish! You will perish!”
That Hydra they said, murdered all the people –
the mighty men, the hard-working women, the cute children,
That Hydra they said, left nothing behind at all:
thousands of broken homes, thousands of unfortunate lives lost.
