Candy By Anna W.


Candy oh candy,

You taste like sugar melting in my mouth.

I love to hear the sound of your wrapper crinkle and crack while you open.

I feel the tingle of you tickling against my tongue.

Just when I smell you my heart skips a beat.

You bring me such a great sweet treat.

I see you most during Halloween fun.

If you where not there life would be so glum,

And I would be one of the most bummed people of all.

Poems Alex P.


I couldn’t do my homework because I was on a run,

I didn’t shoot the basketball because I was blinded by the sun,

I will not go to bed because now I want a bath,

And I didn’t pay attention in class for I dislike math,

In art my work was messy because I didn’t use the stencil,

And now I can’t finish my report ‘cause I broke my pencil,

All of my excuses that I wanted to say,

Well, did they get me out of trouble… just for today?


Wispy cotton floating in the heavens,

Like fluffy sheep in a blue pasture,

Slowly being persuaded by the nagging wind


The heavens boom ominously,

The sky crying and shedding infinite tears,

Turning the earth into limpid pools

There is an unspeakable

and Beautiful
has it
Some don’t show
It warms us
and It is one
of the most
things in life
Some people call it
Enjoying others,
Some say that
It’s taking
in someone’s accomplishments
And some
have one,
Wonderfully broad term:

River Rocks by James

If the world was

a river,

Then people would

be the

River Rocks


Some of us are


And some of us are

Some of us have been
by the current of the
And by the ways of
This world

Some of us are
young and loose,
Trying to find our
place in this
Pebbles of all shapes and sizes
River of a world

Some of us stay in
not bothering with
the Lone Ones
Some of us are the
Lone Ones,
ashamed of our

but not

Valentine’s Poems by Cole

In class a few days ago, we made Valentine’s Day Poems. It is where we take an article from a newspaper or book, then cut it out and choose random words to make a poem. What is cool about this particular kind of “poem”, is you don’t know what it will be like until you are completely finished with the whole thing. Here is what mine looks like:

The Moon By Olivia C.

It’s just a short poem with a simple A-A-B-B rhyme scheme.

The moon, with long, tenuous fingers, perpetually dripping down into puddles of silver stars.

The moon, with a florescent outline, crescent, half, full and new, shines down upon the many cars.

The moon, with a faint smile painted on it’s face till it combusts with jealousy and tries to expunge the sun.

The moon, with craters and pore-like marks, revolving around us, a center of wonder to which we run.

If I Were a Tree by Kayla B.

This is one of the poems I wrote last year and I thought should share it with you all:

If I Were a Tree

If I were a tree I would give shade
to scorching hot people

I would wave my arms
in the nice cool breeze

In the fall I would let
my leaves take a vacation

In the winter I would
go to sleep while kids are playing

I would come back in the spring
I would bloom and start over
