Winter Learning Journey - Poem

Let’s imagine that you were on the first waka to arrive at Shag Point. You had never been to New Zealand before and you had no idea what to expect. Write a poem describing how you would have felt when you arrived in New Zealand. Would you have been excited or scared? I would have felt pretty nervous, I reckon…

Feeling reluctant and anxios.
Taking steps one by one making my way to the waka.
Siting on my own with fear running across my eyes.
I had no one with me.
Siting sadly.
Slow closed my eyes.
When I opened my eyes I saw land.
I jumped of the waka and said bye to the people.

  5. Hi Sanujan. I really like your poem. You have used a lot of big words to explain how you would feel. Keep up the great work.
