    Might be quicker just to write your own.

    It doesn't have to be award winning standard, just demonstrate a slightly higher level than you expect from the children. Which, as they are year 1, shouldn't be too hard!

    This is in The Works
    As Tasty as a Picnic by Celia Warren
    As salty as the sea,
    As crunchy as the sand,
    My banana sandwich
    is curling in my hand.
    As soft as the sun,
    As sweet as a grin,
    My vanilla ice cream
    is dripping down my chin.
    As minnieminx say though - you might save a lot of time and effort writing your own version of what sort of poem you want from your children.
    Edit: I can't get it to insert a line before verse two of the poem which starts As soft ...
