The second poem the be featured on the Stack of Books website from one of our amazing poets Catriona Wake.
Me and Fifi
I read my favourite book today,
I read it almost every day,
There are these people that live inside a melon,
The book seems to go on and on and on,
They are caring, kind, people just like me,
I wish that I could be Fifi,
She’s my favourite character,
I wish I could be more like her,
The book is spinning on the floor!
I try running to the door,
I accidentally stepped on the book,
I smell my dinner, my mum’s a good cook,
The book stops spinning on the floor,
I am not worried anymore,
In my dreams in bed that night, the book was still spinning,
I was falling, falling, falling,
Into the book,
I gave my home one last look,
I became Fifi!
I always thought she was just like me!
I wake up and realise that I am not dreaming,
My smile must be beaming!
I love being Fifi!
She is just like me!
My least favourite character said “Can’t you see?”
You’re stuck in this book for all eternity.”
I scream and shout,
At the top of my voice “Let me out! Let me out!”
From the book, I see my Mum,
She looks very glum,
She is saying “Where is she, where is she?”
I shout, “Mummy, I’m here, I’m Fifi!”
But she doesn’t hear me.
