April Fools by Audrey M.

April Fool’s

by Audrey M.

Monday morning I wake up

My hair is green!

I need my daily dose of caffeine

My bedroom has been shaken up

I think and think very hard

What is today and where are my cards

My cards now found,

I slip in bed,

It’s April Fool’s Day so rest your head.

Love by Emmy Y.

Love

By Emmy Y.

It is fragile

Like the wings of a hummingbird

It is delicate

Like crystals on a snowflake

It is special

Like letters or gifts from your grandmother

There are all different kinds

There are many that you will find

The first kind is romantic

Romantic is something that you feel deep, deep down

You will know because your heart will start to pound loudly when they are around

BOOM

BOOM

BOOM

Loud enough for the whole entire world to hear

You will get that feeling and just know

They are the one for you

Soon after, feeling will follow

They are

KIND

CARING

COMPASSIONATE

And those are only a few

Even though it is abstruse,

Hopefully, they will have the same feelings, too.

If the feelings are true, it will only aggrandize

You won’t feel timorous and tremulous around them anymore

You will notice their pulchritude more and more

And you will think

I KNOW they are the one for me

Last but certainly not least is family

Family cheers you up when you are down and encourages you

They help you get over your woes

You should cherish them and thank them time and time again

To show them it really does affect you

Even though some people say it is not needed

It gives people all over the world hope everyday

It helps people to live their life happily

And it helps people get through hardships

It is beautiful

It is in the air

If you look hard enough

You will see love is everywhere

Poem

By Seth M.

I’ve never written a poem

Please tell me what to do

I haven’t got an idea

I have got no clue

Please, please tell me

What would be swell to you

I’ve never written a poem

How about you?
