Year 2 - John Lyons

This week Year 2 have been learning all about the poetry of John Lyons. We have been reading his poem I Love Johnnie Bake.


I Love Johnnie Bake

I love Johnnie bake
I love Johnnie bake,
My mout water,
wen I think of Johnnie bake
I in de kitchen
wen Gramma make Johnnie bake.

Wen she grate coconut
to put in Johnnie bake
I eat de sweet, sweet bits
too small to grate.
She warm meh about belly-ache;
but I chn help it,
I really love Johnnie bake.

She kneading de flour
an she whole body shake.
I near de oven,
where she bake Johnnie bake,
Looking at how she cuff
de dough flat;
and I cahn get enough of Johnnie bake.
Nothing new!
I love Johnnie bake!
I LOVE JOHNNIE BAKE!
