Roman poetry

As part of our Roman topic, we read the book Escape from Pompeii. In the story there is a descriptive poem all about an earthquake. We had a go at writing a descriptive poem of our own about the earthquake. Take a look below at just a few:

Rumble tumble the ground started to grumble,

Shiver shake everything started to break,

Wiggle wobble everybody started to tremble,

Quiver quake all the houses started to crumble,

Jingle jangle someone started to vibrate,

Shudder judder the sea started to grumble.

Charlie

 

Rumble tumble the walls came down,

People are trembling and stumbling,

Rocks are falling from the houses,

The ground is wobbling and quaking,

Cracking and clattering all the plates fell down.

Matthew

 

Tumble and rumble the rocks started to crumble,

Judder and shudder the people started to mutter,

Quiver and shiver the walls fell down,

Shiver and shake- what a mistake,

Grumble and stumble what a beautiful town when it wobbled down.

Annalise

 

 

The houses started to crumble and tumble

Rumble and grumble the ground started to shake

The pillars are quaking as the grounds awaking

Tremble and crumble pillars start to tumble.

 

Chester

 

Crumble tumble the city walls quake

The ground shakes and shivers

The buildings are shivering and swaying

Rumble tumble the houses went

When the earth shakes

Crumble tumble the city walls quake

 

Isabelle

 

Stumble down, tumble down

The pillars are bound to tremble

The houses start to crumble

The citizens grumble

Stumble down, tumble down

 

Lola

 

The earth is quaking and houses are shaking

The walls will crumble then start to rumble

Everybody will jolt and judder

The bakery is vibrating

Crumble down crumble down

Now you know what happened that day

In the island of Pompeii

 

Lillie

 

The houses started to crumble and tumble

Rumble and grumble the ground started to shake

The pillars are quaking as the ground’s awaking

Tremble and crumble the pillars start to tumble
