Palm Tree Leaf
Lachlan Tactor, Grade 5, Commercial Road Primary School
Sits dangling all round waving, swaying!
Blowing in the whistling wind at night!
During the day it looks so beautiful,
Green shimmer reflecting in your eyes,
You go over and touch it.
As slick as a piece of ice!
Snap it and feel it.
It’s as light as a mini pencil,
As thin as a piece of string.
It could glide through your pinchy little fingers,
The smell of the rainforest.
Just drifted past you,
I hate it! I hate it in ways! It’s prickly when you touch it,
But I still enjoy having it around.
