Emily, Greenbriar Middle School: I am writing a poem about my horse.
Running, Galloping, Jumping,
My name is Pumpkin
I am a Welsh Pony
I look like a carrot
I hear my hooves on the dirt
Running, Galloping, Jumping
Cesca, St. Francis de Sales Parish School:
The very start of a nice spring day
Let's take some looks in nature's way
Breathe the scent of good fresh air
Feel the breeze through your hair!
Devon, Greenview Upper Elementary:
Oklahoma – A poem about my street
Friends and family in the sun
Riding bikes up and down the street, having a lot of fun
Female deer roam freely
Kids play sports with others
Dogs walk with their owners
Bunnies jump and play with others
Avery, Falls-Lenox Primary:
As I get in the water ready to swim
Then I blast off I'm going to win
I cannot be beat
As I kick my feet
I get to the finish line
Knowing I did fine
I have one to go
As I see the swimmers flow
Then I'm done I had so much fun
I just remembered that was the last one
Now I'm all done
That was so fun
Sarah, Huntington Elementary: Here's a poem I wrote. It's funny and silly!
The Wise Alarm Clock
Rise up the day has just begun,
Most likely easier said than done.
The bed works wonders and I don’t want to leave And the alarm clocks barking up the wrong tree.
So I turn it to snooze and go back to sleep And my dream is so dull it’d be sold for cheap.
Most dreams have lots candy
And beaches quite sandy.
But my dream isn’t quite that dandy.
There’s brats, and cats, and chats with gnats, And mats with hats, there’s rats that won’t scat, And prats that have bats.
As the dream continues I hear something I’ve heard before Something I thought was rotten to the core.
What was it you ask?
I’ll tell you at that
It was my school bus driving away.
What I always wanted to go astray.
That evil thing that toke me to school
I always thought it was rather cruel.
At first I thought it was a dream
But I was wrong and wanted to scream.
As I hurry to get ready for school
I realized I had been stubborn as a mule.
Next time round, I will arise
Because my alarm clock is very wise.
Turns out I turned it off
Would my mom be mad or would she scoff?
I guess I’ll find out!
