My rocket adventure by Evie

In my mind I see once more

A galant rocket

tethered to the floor

like a skyscraper it stood proud

its tip hiding in the cloud

The sky was a violet sea

waiting to engulf me, once more


I click my helmet into place

getting ready to BLAST into space

I climbed in the rocket, feeling proud

as I look down into the crowd

My heart is beating in my chest

like a drum pounding fast

the people t the controls consentrating

my mum in the down below fainting


WOOSH went the rocket blasting off the stand

CRACKLE went the flames licking the air

GROWL went the engine roaring like a bear

GASP went the crowd taking in the tension

HUH? Went mum finally revised

5,4,3,2,1 BANG


Flying through space

avoiding the deadly dangerous asteroids

tensing at every bump

narrowly missing,as proud as a lion to be ridding my rocket


and I old now

look back to that rocket thinking of the adventures we had

knowing I will return

and go back to that rocket

go back to space and see the earth like a cork in a vast ocean

And my Red Rocket will wait for me to.
