This week Kellie Elmore gives us a word bank for her Friday Free Write
The words are: blanket – falsetto – cumbersome – cinema – coins…
In a quavering falsetto
the old man sung a wailing tune
a tattered ancient blanket wrapped round his shoulders
his only protection from the winter chill.
Folks hurrying into the cinema
flung a few coins at his feet
their faces a mixture of scorn and pity.
The old man gathered up the money in his fist
and gave a graceful bow.
Then, with a gleeful grin,
he scampered off
the blanket round his shoulders no more cumbersome
than a set of fairy wingsAdvertisements
