In The Library

I asked my 10/11 year old students to think about the library, describe it and associate it to the senses. Every three lines I wrote In the library to create free verse. This inspired by Michael Rosen.

In the library
it’s very boring
it’s peaceful
you can study
In the library
I can hear silence
pages turning
and computer keyboards
In the library
I can hear the door opening
I can see people
I can see books, shelves and computers
In the library
the librarian says shhhh!
I can hear the book trolley passing
and the smell of dust
In the library
I can sleep
with the smell of old and new books
and I can read
In the library
you can hear people breathing
I can’t fly there but
I can smell the flowers
In the library
