My Flash Bike -Transport Poetry

An inquiry unit on Transport being undertaken by Grade 1 students at Narre Warren South P-12 College prompted this poem based on my all time favourite boyhood bicycle.

My Flash Bike

I once owned a bicycle So fine All mine A Healing Semi Racer With Semi Racer handle bars It looked flash It looked sporty Its silver frame shone in the sunlight The spokes glistened The wheels whirred Everything blurred
When I charged down the street A tailwind at my back Atop my speedy machine
Old ladies Dogs And rubbish bins  Were in all in peril When I went peddling by Wheels whirring wildly
