The children have been reading The Midnight Fox in class and at home. We recently wrote some lovely poems about the Midnight. Here are a few out of many that were fantastic in the class.
‘As the dark sky rises high
Its deep dark colours shade in the misty air. Bringing calmness and peace to the world.
As the Moon glistens faithfully on the shining stars, it brings brightness into our hearts.
The Warm breeze shakes the leaves and the black cat purrs and meows in the quiet and silent world around us.’ By Mysha
‘At Midnight, creatures come out to feed while they pounce and the sound of their feet roams free while the owls hoot and the bats squeak and the trees rustle but we stay fast asleep.’ By Anais
‘The colours of the dark night-black, navy and dark purple. The broken lights turn bright yellow to pitch black, all you can hear are the creatures and animals singing and howling. The wind whistling through the sky with the full moon and the sparkling shiny bright stars.’ By Julia
The Midnight Wolf
‘Find me at midnight, when the moon shines full. Don’t worry about the midnight wolf and the other life, there’s only here because of the glistening pool. Maybe we’ll catch and release the faint yellow fireflies. Look around what do you see? Toads, foxes, hedgehogs, warthogs, owls and bats, don’t forget the wolf that gathers here for it is, the centre of life, with bats, owls, cats and howls. It is midnight, there is no light.’ By Jake
‘When the lights go low, when we hear no toes when we see no shadows, noone walks down the meadows. We don’t see people chatting, all we see are bats flapping. We don’t hear children laughing, we can’t hear anything else, no little girls skipping, no little boys walking, no merry faces smiling, no little babies crying.
All is silent at this one time of night, all is peaceful at this one time of night and all is quiet at this one time of night.’ Maheen
‘If you get out of your bed at night and listen to the sounds. You’ll hear the crickets start to click while the cats walk around. The frogs will croak and croak and the streetlights will buzz and buzz. And if you don’t believe me, it really does. The sky turns grey then orange then white and that is the end of the peaceful night.’ Paddy
The Light of the Midnight
‘The Moon light shines brightly in the dark night. The animals lurks in the dark, navy night. The midnight blue shines across the world, over lakes, hills and roads. The beautiful night shines over the cold autumn trees. The shimmering water flows with a frog hopping in the blue midnight. The white moon was sparkling on the dark world. All the world tucked up in bed snuggling while the dark blue sky is beautiful tonight. The moon is fading, it soon will be sunrise, all the people tucked up in bed will soon awake. It is now 7 o’clock, the beautiful, yellow orange sun has rose, the cockerel has crowed, the alarm is gone, goodbye midnight.‘ Lola
On the shivering cold night, I look outside of my window. I see the lamp post on, I am in my room. I see nothing but the moon and stars shining bright, the paths are empty, so are the roads. I wish I was beside the fire but I’m in my bed. Its cold inside, when I touch the floor, my foot feel like it has frostbite. Thank goodness I’m in my room, everyone is asleep but me. The wind is strong and hard, the only thing I hear are the cats hissing but when they stop I hear nothing. Cian
