Poetry - "Once Upon a Dream"

PRU Poets are to be published.

Young Writers from Milton Keynes Primary PRU have been successful in an Annual Poetry Writing Competition with the theme of “Once Upon A Dream”. 

This year, which is the 25th year of the annual competition, there were over 25,000 entries and the standard of entries has been reported as being “very good.” 

9 entries from 9 pupils from Milton Keynes Primary PRU have been chosen to be published in the “Once Upon A Dream” south east edition. 

The competition aims to encourage children to enjoy poetry and the editorial policy takes a broad view of what makes a good poem; perception, imagination and creativity are all taken into account as well as expression, originality and use of language.

I thought 

I thought you would let me go to your party

I thought we were on the same team

I thought you would help me

I thought you was my best friend

I thought you were really kind but you weren’t

I thought you were going to be helpful but you weren’t

I thought I won’t be your friend because of your behaviour

I thought you wouldn’t tell me stuff that’s rude but you did

By Lewis

 

I thought you were my friend

I thought we can play

I thought you were kind

I thought you were my Bro

I thought we would always be friends

I thought we would share things

I thought I could tell you my secrets

I thought you would not tell

By Trent

 

I thought we were going roller-skating together

I thought we were going to have fun

I thought you were my best friend

I thought we were friends forever

I thought we were going out but you let me down

I thought were kind but you hurt my feelings

I thought I could trust you, but you lied

I thought you were loyal but you were not

By Leland

 

 

I thought you’d be kind

I thought you’d be helpful

I thought you’d be support full

I thought you’d a friend

I thought you wouldn’t tell

I thought you wouldn’t make me it.

I thought you wouldn’t make me do bad stuff

I thought you just couldn’t betray me

But you did

By Hallam

 

I thought you would help me

I thought you were kind

I thought we would share

I thought you were funny

I thought we would you were rich but you’re not

I thought you were funny but you’re not

I thought you had a car but you don’t

I thought you were kind but you’re not

By Devon

 

Good

I thought you would get me a car

I thought you would get me a job

I thought you will build me a treehouse

I thought you would get me a doughnut tray

Bad

I thought I liked you but not

I thought you were kind but you weren’t

I thought you would not crash my game but you did

I thought you loved me but you didn’t
