Wake Up




Wake Up! :


Wake up! Wake up!

It’s a lovely day.

Oh! Please get up

And come and play.

The birds are singing in the trees,

And you can hear the buzzing bees.


Wake up! Wake up!

It’s a lovely day.

Oh! Please get up

And come and play.

It’s much too late to lie in bed,

So hurry up, you sleepy head.


Wash and dress

And come on out

Everyone is up and about.

The cow, the horses, the ducks

And the sheep,

The tiniest chicken

Cheep-cheep-cheep

Wake up!


C. Fletcher


The word POETRY originates from a Greek word meaning TO MAKE. A poet is thus a maker and the poem something that is made or created. No single definition of poetry is possible but some characteristic features of poetry may be mentioned. Poetry has a musical quality with rhythm, pitch, metre and it may use figures of speech such as simile and metaphor. While quite a few poems in this selection are in traditional forms, the unit also includes modern poems that are free from formal restrictions.


Here is a list of English Poems written by various authors. Whatever the question is, poetry may be the answer. Writers say poetry provides them with comfort, a way to express themselves and the discipline of finding the essence with few words. Writing the poem (and finding just the right word) is the measure of success that the authors use. Really good poetry is instinctive. It’s who you are. It’s from the heart. You need to expose yourself to all kinds of poets and you may find your motivation and muse that way. Poetry gets to the core meaning. Poetry expands ideas.
