Starfish in a Puddle

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.
