The Day That Changed Our Lives

The Day That Changed Our Lives

146, Christmas they will never see
Behind locked bars and doors
They will forever be
Once singing and dancing through the day
Not enough windows to get away

Because of this act, it is true
Things are much safer for me and you
A few people right from the start
Took this tragedy
Straight to their hearts

They fought for us in court
And they’ve made some laws
They’ve helped us at work
And when we get old
We’ve them to thank for being so bold.

Deep Down

Deep down in the sea
I’ll hear the wind roaring
very faintly you see.

Know why I’m here?
I put myself there, but I’m so very calm
I don’t care.

Deep Down in the sea
I’ll hear the wind roaring
very faintly you see.
Deep Down in the sea.

The Greenbelt 5/5 (1)

The boy takes pictures
Of the waterfall
The trail with his father
The grass that sways
Like a tilted kayak
On the creek’s flowing water
The boy’s first time climbing
Up the moderate hill
Gradually getting steeper
Steeper
Steeper
They stop for water
Back up the bumpy slope
Returning, he thinks to himself
Of the amazing scenery
He will undoubtedly come back
To the breathtaking greenbelt

The Crying Cloud 2.5/5 (2)

Out from the blue sky,
Blooms a cloud that cries.
Oh! So very sad,
I cannot be mad.

Your life is with me,
You see.
So why you cry
So deep.
Take it easy
When you feel queasy.
Don’t get cranky,
Which no one likes.
The crying cloud suddenly stops,
It sees,
all the people filled with happiness.

The cloud smile’s,
It’s heart opens wide.
And from a cloud,
It’s a Sun.
Shining bright with joy.
It’s a merryful way,
To start your day.
And keep this in your heart!!!

Ode To Fat Cat

Oh Calvin Cat
You are so fat

You are so lazy
But sometimes crazy

You are the fattest feline
And we have such a good time

You don’t get off the chair
When it moves do you even care

You look like a cow
And you have a weird meow

You are so fat
My dear Calvin Cat

Ice Cream

Ice cream!
It tastes so good.
It feels like you are chewing lots of different flavors.
Ice cream feels like a cloud
With endless possibilities like caramel, strawberry, chocolate, vanilla. There’s even ice cream that has candy in it.
Whenever you chew ice cream it feels like you are in ice cream world it is so chewy like a browny.
And also the ice cream has a little cherry on top of it and the cherry looks like a little hat the cherry is ;o so cute and the ice cream looks very delicious.
some ice creams are decorated with goody’s,
like chocolate chips in them
and sprinkles in them and some ice creams have
candies like nerds
and also little chocolates candies
some have strawberries some have marshmallows
and some have nuts they are really good .
Ice cream feels really cold
and sometimes ice cream is hard
but when you lik the ice cream it feels really soft
sometimes the ice cream feels really squishy, and sometimes soggy .
The ice cream smells like a bunch of flavors
and it also smells like so many kinds of candy.

Dreams

Once they come they never stop
Beautiful things roam in my head
Like Mustangs racing through the grass
Dolphins surfing the waves

As my mind takes me places
I would hardly imagine being in
As I see the sunset before me
I try to soak in but its too much

I catch my breath
Beep Beep! My alarm goes off
My imagination is put on a hold
Until next time…

E.L.A

E.L.A is so fun and exciting.
There are lots of amusing things to do.
Reading books and writing poems
Is very fun and relaxing.

Brainstorming and typing are also very fun.
Writing has no limit, so be creative.
An endless void of ideas to discover.
It’s always reaching out to you so you can explore it .

Vesuvius

In AD 79,
In the town of Pompeii,
A volcano rose up
And blew it away.

The people weren’t silent,
they were very loud.
The sky was all dark
like a giant black cloud.

The eruption was violent,
as you can see.
One of the biggest eruptions
in history.
