Poetry Day Ireland with The WRITE STUFF Kids Club

What better way to celebrate Poetry Day Ireland 2017 with The WRITE STUFF Kids Club than with
a selection of poems written by the children themselves. Over the past week, a number of children at the Muff and Greencastle groups have been writing 'Memory' poems and 'List' poems in celebration of our National Poetry Day. We have Heaney, Yeats, Kavanagh, Boland and more. But now we have many budding poets here in our wee club in Donegal.
Some of the children's work is included below:

Susie (aged 8)
I remember, I remember
The day I got my cat.
I put a blanket on her head,
She wore it like a hat

Áine (aged 8)
I remember when I went to Portugal
It was amazing
Someone jumped in the pool,
It was really cool.

Sophie (aged 6)
I remember, I remember
It was Christmas Day.
I got lots of books,
Now I read in every way.

Holly
I remember, I remember
When I went to the hospital
To meet my new baby cousin
The day when she was born.

Sarah
I remember when
I accidentally  slammed the door
On Peadar's finger
He had to go to hospital


Niamh
I remember, I remember
The time I was with my friend
We went to the cinema
And enjoyed SING through to the end.

Megan
I remember, I remember
When our house was getting built.
I climbed up a pile of gravel
And I got stuck.
Dad came up and got me
He brought me down and saved me.

Olivia
I remember, I remember
When I was a cat
It was Halloween
And I sat on the mat.

T.J.
Once I went to the beach
But I didn't take a peach.
I did not bring a table or a stable
I did take a bucket and a spade
Then I went home
Without a bone.

Jessica
I remember, I remember
The day I met the dog
My cousin was all jolly
Cos her dog's name was Holly.

Lily
I remember, I remember
The Halloween that I sat
It felt so very cool
There on the mat.

Will
I remember, I remember
I had a cat
It looks quite fat
The cat's quite goofy
And it looks poofy.

Jason
I remember, I remember
It was last November
A lovely day and it was my birthday
My friends and I ran all about
They they had to go home,
Oh what a night.





Caitlin
I remember, I remember
I had three little fish
The swam around in a little dish
My three little fish.



Emma
I remember, I remember
The cat that wears a hat
And sits n a mat
With his friend called Pat.

Eleanor
I remember, I remember
When I went to America
I got called out of the pool
I was floating on water
So cool.

Aine
I remember, I remember
I had two cats
They had four kittens three times
And they loved hearing rhymes.
One cat was named Pat
Who sat in my hat
And then I splited in two!

Allanah
I remember, I remember
One day Mummy made some buns.
They were yummy
In my tummy
I remember, I remember
After the buns
We went to the park
And had a lot of fun.

Hannah
I remember, I remember
When I saw Emma
For the first time
When the time went chime.

Caoimhe
I remember, I remember
The first day with
Grainne McCool.
It was mad and crazy,
But also kinda cool!

Pauric
The bark of a dog
The oink of a pig
The meow of a cat
A moo is a cow
A hoot of an owl.










Oisin
I remember, I remember
The day I went to Dunlewy
Lots of fun in the park
Stayed there until dark.









Olwyn
The roar of a dragon
Meow says the cat
Bark, bark, there goes a dog
Ba, ba, I love lambs
Neigh, is that a horse?

Elana
I remember, I remember
It was Christmas night
There was completely no light
I could hear the reindeer
Ready for their flight.
I loved that Christmas night.

Hannah
The hiss of a snake
The woof of a dog
The growl of a wolf
The oink of a pig
The hoot of an owl
The purr of a cat.








Clara 
I remember, I remember
Her bright sparkling eyes
The little doggy Flash
In bed happily she lies.



Jenna
I remember, I remember
When my cousin was born
I don't know much, but
I know Connie had rectangle glasses!




Emma
I remember, I remember
The day I went on a horse
The Sea Scouts were all there
That horse had lots of hair.

These children are all aged between 6 - 12. What a very fitting tribute for today, National Poetry Day 2017 here in Ireland. Very proud of each and every one of these children.
