Poem by Josie Whitehead

As busy as that busy bee

    That's landed on a flower.

As soft as raindrops falling

    From an early morning shower.

 

As black as coal that's burning

    With a crackling, blazing light.

As white as snow that's falling

    From the dark and chilly night.

 

As dull as dishwater that sits

    Inside the kitchen sink.

As tasty as Mum's apple pie

    That's gone within a blink.

 

As bright as summer's sunshine

    That brightens up the day.

As dull as thick clouds overhead

    That paint our world quite grey.

 

As noisy as the treetop is

    With boisterous, chattering birds

And as useful as these similes were

    Which enhanced this poet's words.
