               Vicki Jacobson

              Make me laugh and
              Cry of happiness.
              Have lots of toys and games to play.
              I love them very dearly.
         They Love to swim
              Day and night.
              Reading together is our special time
              Evenings and at
              Nighttime.

Acrostic Poem
Happy Forest             Filled with trees
                       Overgrown by weeds
                           Reaching miles
                       Extending to the skies
                       Seasons full of change
                         Thankful for rain

                       Pink is . . .
                    (Color Poem)
                by Courtney Walker

                 Pink is a little girl’s tutu
                as she dances across the stage.

                          Pink is a pig
                   before it rolls in the mud.

                      Pink is bubble gum
                  popping on a child’s face . . .

                         Pink is a flower
                      blowing in the wind.

Smells like sweet peaches




Looks like tall, green pine trees




Tastes like sweet honeysuckle




Feels like pine tar stuck on your finger



Sounds like mosquitoes buzzing in your ears

War
Five Senses Poem

Looks like a firework show on the fourth of July
Smells like sulfur
Tastes like iron and dirt
Feels like a pointless conflict with someone you love
Sounds like the bass drum of a marching band
When will this war be over?

                                  Trees
                          Trees are nice to see,
                        Standing tall, bold, silently,
                           Swaying in the wind.

What I Wish
I Wish…
Anna Beason
                              What I Wish
                             I wish I could swim.
              I wish there were no such thing as cold weather.
                   I wish my mom would let me have a dog.
                  I wish Christmas would get here quicker.
                    I wish I were not afraid of the dark.
                  I wish summer break would last forever.
                           I wish I had a brother.


Playful Kangaroos
“If I Were” poem
Maria Powell

Playful Kangaroos
If I were a kangaroo
I’d be as happy as could be
I would hop and jump and play
Until the day is gone
And it is time to go home for dinner.

Making it to Italy
“If I were” poem
Heather Roebuck                    If I were a bird

                                 I’d find a way
                             To get to Italy to stay
                    Once I was there I would fly to Florence
                  and live in the Bell Tower by the Il Duomo
                  I would talk with tourists and learn Italian.


The Student
(Limerick)
Benita Reese
                         There was a small child in first grade,
                         Her mother kept all that she’d made.
                                She never got bored.
                            Her grades, how they soared,
                          And now she’s out learning a trade.

Two of a Kind
(Limerick)
Jennifer Petrie                 Two of a Kind

                          Imagine a cat that could dance,
                        Around the room he would prance.
                                 Along came a dog,
                                That wanted to clog,
                     An unlikely pair that might have a chance!

      May-mester Madness

             Limerick
            Kyle Taft




There once was a ‘mester in May,
That was so very stressful, I say.
        So much work to do,
        And a long drive too,
  I wish it was finished today!

Trees
Rhyming Poem
Kawana Moffett




                        Trees, Trees, Wonderful Trees,
                    How tall, how large, and great are these.
                     You give us so much, so many things,
                     You are very important to us it seems.
                   We make paper, toothpaste, a vast variety,
                      A variety of things important to me.
                        Thank you trees for all you do,
                 The world would not be the same without you!




                                                                23
Lyric
Vanessa Sims
                              Because of Who You Are...


Because of who you are, Father, I give you all the glory and honor,
You flung the moon, the sun, and stars that burn in space,
To abide in us is your presence, your glory, I call shekinah,
Your love is everlasting, evident in your gift given to us, your grace.


Because of who you are, all of my praises, to you I send,
You are he who was, and is, and is to come,
For all of your greatness, I magnify you, to your knowledge, there is no end,
Your wisdom is all encompassing, your presence I will always long.


Because of who you are, I sing holy, holy, holy,
To abide in you, and you abide in me, oh, is my deepest desire,
To include the privilege of serving you, and to have your Spirit control me,
To share your love, salvation, peace, and joy with others and to inspire.


Because of who you are, God, my Father, I bless your name,
I exalt you, I lift you on high, and your name I will proclaim.




                                                                                24
