Spring Into Verse- Day 13 - Using A Refrain In A Poem

Today's poem has a refrain that aims to be lighthearted and provide a sense of fun and enjoyment. New shoes often have that effect on the wearer. New shoes tend to improve your spirits.

The use of repetition in a poem is a literary device that young poets love to employ. It's just a line or lines repeated throughout a poem.  I can recall  once having Prep students parading around a classroom wearing preposterous shoes while reciting this little poem. 


Groovy Shoes

Groovy shoes
Groovy shoes
I just can't lose with groovy shoes

Pink shoes laces
Oh so groovy
I could be in any movie

Ripple soles
Watch me walk
All my friends stop and talk

Groovy shoes
Stripey green
When I walk by it's such a scene

Every body stops to stare
They all shout
I want a pair!

Groovy shoes
Groovy shoes
I just can't lose with groovy shoes.

Groovy shoes
Groovy shoes
I just can't lose with groovy shoes
