Day 11 – Questions and Answers

Question and Answer poems are so much fun to write! You don’t have to separate out the questions and answers like I have – they can follow one another like a conversation.

If I asked you, “What’s your favourite colour?” you might answer ‘Red’ or ‘Green’. Try answering that question again with your poet hat on.

What’s your favourite colour?
It’s the forests and valleys. The grass beneath my toes.
It’s a strawberry fresh for picking. The moon, blood-angry with the sun.

Have a go at writing some question and answer poetry. You can use these question prompts to get you started.

Where does the sun go at night?
How far away is the moon?
Why does the morning bird sing?
Where is the missing sock?
