POTRAIT POEMS


My hair is like ribbon

My skin is like gentle fur

My eyes are honest, not fibbing

My voice is not like a sir’s

My home is in America

And I love anyone that doesn’t often stir.


By Emily

My voice is unique like a bunny

I wish to live in a mansion with a clean pool

And I love gummies.

My eyes look to a faraway land

I live in a building

And I love that I’m not in a band.

My skin is soft and whitish

My voice is not like an icky river

My eyes are like bright-ish

I live in a book

And I love that my hair is light-ish.

And violins were flutes

They’d be stringy and high pitched

And big and have roots.

LIMERICK


There once was a dog named Ray

Who always loved the hay

He always ate it from the barn

Then set off the alarm

But even if he wants hay, I will say okay.

The Curious Girl


There once was a girl who was curious

She was also hilarous

She stuck her foot in a puppet

She screamed like a muppet

I pulled out laughing while she was furious.

Imagery

Easter


Any color eggs,

Bumpy on the top and the bottom

Cracks on the side

Down come the bunnies


Eggs covered with Chocolate

For everyone to find

Good hiding places

Hats covering them


Jumping ducking,

Kicking everything behind

Laying on the grass

Must they rest at last


Nests of eggs

On high trees

Peeping everywhere

Quack, quack, comes out the ducklings


Roster mothers shriek

Screaming goes the hens

Toughly they ducklings respond

Using their tough voice box


Violence not their answer

When they use their voice box

Xylophones play


Yay! scream the birds

zzzzzz...as they dose off.


By Emily and Ashanti

Spring


The homesick animals return

From their long journey

Earth blossoms into tiny buds

The sky has puffy clouds

Earth comes to life

And the animals stir

Ice melts with a crackle

As birds tweet their welcoming songs

Spring has return.


By Emily

Spring


A new season is here

It’s finally spring

While fresh trees rustle

A Little brown bird sings

The sweet flowers are blossoms

And the people use their razors

To cut down the trees

Well, its all part of nature

In the bright clear blue sky

Butterflies fly around

And while small animals

Scurry around on the ground.


By Crystal

Winter

Crystal dear snowflakes

Dark falls fast

Wind blowing wildly

Peaceful night at rest


Whoosh Whoosh

Snowball flies by

As it hit you

Brrr


Quiet night thoughts

Wind whistling

Waves crashing

Beep

Interrupted by honks of cars


Step step step

Woosh woosh woosh

Brr brr

Zip zip zip

All sounds of winter

Glistening skies

It is

Winter.


By Sonia

AABB Pattern

Basketball is orange and black

Some players are wack

Most players are tall

They run and shoot the ball


Some teams win

Other teams grin

Some coaches are happy

Some coaches are nappy.

FREE VERSE


Sun and Moon


You go up and I go down

I see myself as an angel when nobody can see me

I look in the lake and see the moon a my halo

And the clouds as my get away

I start to see the light blue, dark green, light green

And the angel inside that I could see, disappears

I look up and the devil inside me appears

My halo turns into horns and my get away

Turns into a dark cage

People begin to see the real me when the sun comes up

But I turn into something I’m not supposed to

AABB pattern Summer


Its summer

Its summer

Its hot Like a big pot

I went to the beach

But do I have to teach

But its summer mom!

And my dad is named Tom

Oh no I got to go

And that’s all I know

Then I will drink tea

And sit and look at the sea

Oh no

Oh no

Here is the tax

Can I pay for the gas?

Hurry into my car

And I drive far

Vroom vroom vroom

Quick before it’s my doom

School


The school bell rings

Every single day

There is no king

That’s what they say


After the moms drop them off

The kids play with the hay

And they play the sport golf

At the end the kids shout Hey!

Carpe Diem Poem

If this was the last day on earth

I will ask Zeus to be immortal

So I can hug my parents goodbye

I will also go and climb Mount Everest

Then I will still be alive

_________________________________________________

Seize the Day For 24 hours

In that amount of time

Do whatever you want

For tomorrow is your last day

You have to LOL

You have to LOL

Have a good time

For tomorrow is your last day

I would do anything I have time to

But live your

life Because you will be dead

Ballad


Sophia the Fairy


This is a tale of Sophia

Who loved to fly around

She never took a rest

She never touched the ground


When her mom called her down

She would always say no

Even though she still got food

She would never fly low


When she was a young woman

She had 3 little children

But she did not care about them

So they lived in a fairy building


So when she grew old

She didn’t want to fly

She stopped her way and closed her eyes and fell down and died

_________________________________________________

ABC Ballad Poem in ABAB pattern


Addie pops out a rock at 3am

But she wasn’t just an ordinary girl

Can she fly at the count of ten

Down she goes with a whirl


Every second of the day, controlling the earth

Feeling pride as she goes

Gone with the wind feeling worth

Happily goes home to doze


"I’ve never felt so strong inside"

Joking with BFF Sally

Kindly she would be a guide

Leading the scouts to a rally


Meeting a black cat on the way home

Never superstitious before

Only stopping for an ice cream cone

Pulled to the Earth’s very core


Quiet as a cat

Resting with the lava

She jumps out fast as a bat

To find a shop full of guava


Unfortunately it was too expensive

Violins played a sad song

What will we do without getting defensive?

X-Ray eyes find money, but it was wrong


Yet the day is over


ZZZZ dreaming of a pink 4 leaf clover


By Ashley, Sonia, Crystal, Emily and Alice

A Hundred Years Ago


A hundred years ago water was cleaner than now

But now it stands polluted

Can you believe that it’s so foul

Does it ever get saluted?


Electric refrigerators were just invented

"Founded the useful Bra"

Goodness they were sold and not rented

How is that not against the law?


In that time parachutes were created

Jumping out of the sky was now safe

Keeping crowds watching as they waited

Looking on with faith


Moms were using cloth diapers for babies

Never having to use palm leaves

"Oh please give us a break" said the ladies

Please I beg you Please


Quickly there came the crossword puzzle

Reminding you of what you learned

Successfully swept the nation like a guzzle

Thinking leads to knowledge earned


Under the sea the water holds wonders

Verifying history through time

Wow I never knew knowledge flashed like a thunder

X-Raying our ancestors climb


Yes, the seaport holds our secrets close

Ziplocking memories like an unpredictable host


By Ashley, Emily, Alice, Crystal, Sonia, Ashanti and Ashley


Never forget how beautiful you are and how much you are loved. And always, always keep writing.
