Have fun with the poem by trying this...

This poem makes verses based on things which often go together, for examples the conker and string, the carrot and sprout. Here are two more pairs. For each of them write a third and fourth line in the style of the poem. 1) If you were a fish/And I was a chip. 2) If you were a bat/ And I was a ball. You could also try and make up two of your own pairs of things to make into four line verses.

If you were a carrot
and I was a sprout
I’d boil along with you
I’d sit on your plate

If you were a tadpole
and I was a frog
I’d wait till your legs grew
I’d teach you to croak

If you were a conker
and I was a string
we’d win every battle
we’d beat everything

If you were a jotter
and I was a pen
I’d write you a message
again and again

If you were a farmer
I’d be in your herd
if you were a popsong
I’d sing every word

I wish I could tell you
that I like you a lot
but you’re like a secret
and I’m like a knot.

If You Were a Carrot
