Thank you for a good start to the wee and it is nice to see a good few of us have completed the maths set yesterday!
I have set a new chapter on Purple Mash and have also set a very good internet safety computing task on the same website so please go and have a look at that.
Other than working through that today, I would like you to create a stanza from a poem following the same rhyming scheme as Invictus.
A Out of the night that covers me,
B Black as the pit form pole to pole,
A I thank whatever god may be,
B For my unconquerable soul.
So the 1st and 3rd line’s last words (me and be) rhyme and so do the 2nd and 4th (pole and soul) which makes the rhyming scheme ABAB.
Try your own one out:
As I sit here at the table,
The sun shines in my eyes,
I stand up, blinded, and trip on the cable,
The room fills with my cries.
This (partly true story) once again follows ABAB rhyming scheme. ‘Table’ and ‘cable’ rhyme, as does ‘eyes’ and ‘cries’.
Post your stanza int he comment section. It can be on based on anything you want and only has to be four lines long.
