Arlo and the Orca – Sadness Poem

Another collaborative poem made once again by Room 8. This time we are looking at sadness through the eyes of Arlo from the book Arlo and the Orca.



Cold tears dripping on your face

Water and cold air


Tears running down your face

Like a cold gust of wind

You are no one

Tears dropping out of your eyes

Into the ocean

Salty tears


You’ve had enough

Crying salty tears and sweat

Bitter feeling of guilt, depression and regret

Sadness is blue, a rainy day
