Recommended Posts

Hi,

I was just wondering if anyone has come across a inspiring poem on Outdoor Play?

I'm sure I've seen/heard on which was realy god, but can't remember where I came across it.

I wanted one to add to my 'Outdoor Display area'.

Thanks so much

Sunshine, these are from the The Big Alfie Out Of Doors Storybook by Shirley Hughes:

 

Fallen Giant

 

A big tree

lying down

is like a giant

with torn-out roots

instead of feet.

It's like a ship

sailing far out to sea,

or a house with many rooms.

It has places to hide

and swing on

and climb along.

A big tree

lying down

is a good place to play.

But you can never make it stand up again.

Not ever.

 

Creepy Crawly World

 

Lift up a stone and you can see

a creepy crawly world.

You can watch the creepy crawlies hurrying about,

busily moving on many legs,

with strangely shaped bodies

and feelers -

for feeling their way along.

 

in a creepy crawly world,

a tiny piece of twig is like a giant log

which has to be pushed,

or pulled,

or climbed over,

or patiently gone round.

Creepy crawlies don't mind how long it takes

to get where they are going.

But why they want to get there,

nobody knows.

Oh, this one's great...

 

"I'm In Love With Mud"

 

I'm in love with mud,

It's sad, I know, but true.

I just can't help but splash in it,

Or stomp a path right through.

 

It's sticky and it's dirty,

And it covers all my clothes.

But when I see it lying there,

A voice inside me grows...

 

...You can't resist, you know I'm right,

It's fun to play in mud!

Look at it just sitting there,

I really think you should!

 

I splatter in the grimy gloop,

I can't resist the ooze!

I run, I jump, I stamp about,

It drips into my shoes!

Can't remember where I got this recently, but think it was FSF!

 

When we play outside today

there's going to be lots to do

When we play outside today

we're sure to learn something new

For everyone that goes there today

will run and jump and climb in their play

so we must all make sure we're dressed in the right clothes.

Beneath the trees, where nobody sees

We'll hide and seek as long as we please

So we must all make sure we're dressed in the right clothes.
