Shape Poem

sunny days, soft sand,
cool water, sea shells
ice cream, beach ball
warm sunshine,
swimming, walking barefoot
fun

List Poem

O'Neill.
The Irish capital
such a beautiful
place to live
where the biggest
shamrock is
a perfect town
not too big,
not too small
O'Neill.
It's not just a town,
it's home
so be proud
of this town
where we take
pride in being
the Eagles
O'Neill.

Persona Poem

I am tired of being used,
over and over.
Everyday I shrink,
getting smaller...
and smaller.
I'm used for taking away words on paper,
I should have more respect.
When I'm not needed, I'm locked up inside a jail.
Oh how I am tired
of being over-used.

Nebraska

Nebraska's a great place
so full of grace
you can smell the clean air
and feel the breeze in your hair
known for the corn,
and the new cattle born
the beautiful stars in the sky,
and the fluffy clouds up high
So here we live, in this great state of our's
roaming in the fields of corn and flowers

Winter Poem

         Winter
brisk, harsh, cold
wood burning, hot cocoa, cookies baking
Christmas carols, freezing wind blowing
crisp, sweet, chilly
         Winter

Acrostic Poems

Hours
Oh no
More hours
Extra work
Waste of time
Outrageously tiring
Reading long paragraphs
Killing me

Rhyming Poems

            Once I had a pet rat
        who was way too fat 
          the rat sat on a hat
        the hat flattened into a mat
         which upsetted the cat 
         who chased the rat
         and made the rat scat
            out the door
          and the fat rat 
        was seen no more

Friendship Poem

         Friendship is like family

       Friends always have your back

       They care for you and love you

       It's hard to say goodbye

       and you never want to be parted <3
