Poetry Day is the seventh episode of Season 2 of Between the Lions, and episode 37 in total.
|SCENE 1||Theo is giving out t-shirts before the poetry day starts.|
|SCENE 2||Click and Cleo prepare the play by announcing the audience by adding words to their poems with the A-I sound, "a".|
|Lionel and Leona want to write a poet with the "ai "sound, so Cleo makes them do it.|
|Insert||Walter and Clay think it's Poultry Day, but it annoys Busterfield saying "It's Poetry!!!"|
|The first poem begins, being read by Theo, called "Waiting for the Train" with some words with the A-I sound, "a".|
|Insert||Busterfield explains that the poem has rhymes like "train" and "rain", but Clay and Walter still get stuck on the "poultry" idea.|
|Insert||The grey hand takes the "ai" sound from the word "train".|
|Muppets||Martha Reader and The Vowelles singing the "a" sound by the letters "A-I" in the word "pail".|

|Cartoon||Tiger Words: A Train Trip to Spain [pant or paint]|
|SCENE 3||The next poet is a very special guest. Robert Louis Stevenson is introduced, and recites his poem called "Rain".|
|Insert||Walter and Clay liked the poetry story, but Buster says that not all poems have to have a story.|
|Lionel and Leona now are telling a poem called "Drain Chain".|
|Insert||Busterfield knows the previous poem was about the words in poetry, because the words have the accented the poet's raw emotions; this makes Clay's brain hurt.|
|Song||"When Two Vowels Go Walking"|
|Celebrity||Fred Says: drain|
|Insert||Sky: drain, brain, train, rain|
|Cartoon||The Adventures of Cliff Hanger: Cliff Hanger and the Rain|
|Insert||The grey hand puts the "ai" sound back in the word "train".|
|SCENE 4||A chicken from the jazz band tells a poem about dancing with a chicken in the rain.|
|SCENE 4 (cont'd)||Cleo thanks everyone and to have another Poetry Day next year, until the pigeons appeared to say that they have a poem that's called "A Poem" that makes Busterfield move around different backgrounds. And Click finally used the lever to raise the curtain instead of using the switches.|
|Insert||The pigeons flew back to the dome when Busterfield says "Bravo" to them because their poem was beautiful, but Walter still doesn't understand about "poultry", Busterfield ended the episode by saying "I take it all back" in his annoyance with "poultry" again.|
