Letters and information

Last Night I saw the city...


In Literacy, we have been writing poems inspired by 'Last Night, I saw the City Breathing' written by Andrew Fusek Peters.


Well done to all of the children for using figurative language in their poems!





Here are some verses of their poems (It was so difficult only picking a few!) :


Last night I saw the city breathing,

Rushing in and out,

Huffing and puffing.




Last night I saw the street lights,

Glowing like stars.

Last night I saw a broken heart,

Begging, praying, beginning to crack.




Last night I saw the city screaming,

Smashed glass got shattered.

People ran out of stations mouths.

Fireworks exploded in the air.




Last night, I heard the city singing.

Tree leaves rustled,

Shadows whispered among themselves.

Birds tweeted above the skyscrapers,

And car horns beeped in the night.
