The Beast at the Window

Ms Smith's Primary class were in Adare classroom just before lunch. Outside, a large and extremely noisy cement mixer working on cricket pavilion path renovations. Inside, a group of distracted junior pupils. Answer, obviously: write a poem. So this is Katie Stewart's response, bearing in mind this year's Junior Poetry theme, 'Creatures':

The big metal creature,
hulky, white and vivid red,
makes noises
churning and grumbling.
Its belly spins like an angry
metal monster.

It turns and turns
'til everything is liquid.

As the stones digest
I sit, listen and worry.
