Abbie Retty from Goodlyburn Primary
Uisge cho soilleir ri sgàthan,
An adhar cho mòr ris an t-saoghail,
Doras air taigh sgiobalta m’antaidh,
Sùilean gleansach air mo charaid Stephanie,
Dearcan blasta is milis ri ithe,
Dealan-dè brèagha le sgiathan snog,
Flùraichean a’fàs le fàileadh àlainn,
Muile-mhagag làn phuinnsean.
Gocan-gorm le òran ceòlmhòr.
Water as clear as a mirror,
The sky as big as the world,
The door of my auntie’s neat house,
My friend Stephanie’s sparkly eyes,
Tasty blueberries so sweet to eat,
A beautiful butterfly with lovely wings,
Flowers growing with a lovely smell,
A frog full of poison,
A blue-tit with a musical song.

About Abbie Retty from Goodlyburn Primary
“I really like the colour blue and started to think of lots of things that were blue, I tried to use lots of describing words when I was thinking about all of the blue things. I also like purple so my next poem might be about purple things – I think this will be trickier.”
