Aboard a brightly coloured yacht

   That sails across the sea;

Beneath the pure blue azure sky -

   That’s where I’d like to be.


Amidst the bluebells in the woods,

   Beneath the tall oak tree;

Within the woodlands shaded glades,

   That’s where I’d like to be.


Amongst the many summer flowers,

   The butterflies and bees -

In peaceful bliss, on summer days,

    That’s where I’d like to be.


Within a world where people care

   And all mankind lives free;

Where love pervades the human soul -

   That’s where I’d like to be.

A Preposition Poem

What is a preposition?  


It is a word that tells you where something takes place, ie - aboard, amidst, amongst, within etc.


Here are some more examples, and perhaps you'd like to try writing some sentences using these words:  about, across, after, against, along, below, beneath, beside, etc etc

Write some of your own prepositions.  Then try writing some sentences:


Beside the gently trickling stream


My poem is written in iambic heptameter, ie 7 iambic feet over two lines: di DUM di DUM di DUM di DUM


Try writing some sentences which start with a preposition and also has four iambic feet as above, and perhaps even seven.  You'll soon be a poet before you know it!!


Read more about prepositions here:


The above poem tells you of the many beautiful, peaceful places that are to be found in our wonderful world, but why is it that mankind aims to dominate all and is prepared to commit wicked acts of cruelty etc in order to do this.  I think I am lucky to live in a part of the world where people can freely speak, freely vote and freedom is valued.  What do you all think?
