Starfish in a Puddle
Sarah loved the simplicity of this gorgeous little poem, which makes great use of repetition and then takes you by surprise in the last verse.
Starfish in a puddle when you touch it it lights up. Starfish in a puddle when you pat it it turns rainbow-coloured. Starfish in a puddle when you stroke it it sings. Starfish in a puddle it lives there because all the sea has been taken.
