Week beginning 15/06/20 Poetry

This week we will be looking at Poetry around our topic of Pilgrimage and special journeys. I hope you enjoy this?

Your activity for this week is to read the poem below on Pilgrims and then you can use the templates to create your own poem about  a special journey that you have been on or would like to go on. Lets get creative!


Pilgrims to the Promised Land;
Will their journey sink in sand?
Stories shared along the way
Following what the signposts say.

Or do we wander on our own
By shifting breezes quickly blown?
Escaping from those ties that bind;
Pressures that confuse the mind.

Pilgrims never know their route;
Only God's directions now will suit.
Prodigals, frightened, far from home;
Through the land of giants they will roam.

Timid, forgotten refugees
In tiny boats and stormy seas;
Cared for by God in all His grace;
Guided to a safer place.

Stranger, pilgrims, friends and brothers
Denying self and serving others.
We share this journey, me and you
Finding God's directions to be true.
