Below are samples of some budding poets from our upper grades from their poetry units.
My inside self and my outside self
Are different as can be
My face looks rather young
And is a bit chubby
I am quite short
With lips that are little
And sometimes I feel
I'm fluffy around the middle
My inside self is different
As you can see
I'm more confident
And filled with much glee
I look more mature
As I stand tall
And with my full lips and thinner middle
I feel better overall
Green can mean energetic or calm.
Green is sour like a freshly picked lime.
Green is sharp like a knife.
Green is the smell of pine trees or flowers.
Green is as lone as miles and miles of grassland.
Green is the sound of the grass swaying around by the wind. (SARAH)
THE LAKE HOUSE: (by Louis)
Warm, clear day
At sundown bird twirping, trees rustling
People fishing, eagles soaring, clouds breaking
HER GIFT TO ME (by Joe)
Her smile was frail but merry.
Her deck of cards sat on the table
Next to her fragile hands,
She could always remember our names
For that is something she wouldn't dare forget,
She told us stories of her life,
And we told her stories of ours.
She would never spare a detail
Which we all greatly respected,
Thump! Thump! Her heartbeats were limited,
But she would never surrender
She was worn by the 101 years, But she was stronger than any of us,
Though she is gone now,
She left with me her prized possession,
