Simile Poem
By: Aurelie Biehler

I am mad
as
a storm,
I am silly
as
a monkey,
I am dumb
as
a donkey,
I am tall
as
a tree,
I am hungry
as
a lion,
I am nice
as
a horse,
I am loud
as
a thunderstorm,
I am thin
as
paper,
I am clever
as
my Mum.

By: Kathy Leeuwenburg

A

o
pen
f
lower, scented pages, fragrant hours.
A
b
ook is like a
c
rafty
f
ox, surprising in its clever plots.
A
b
ook is like a
f
airy's
w
ings, with princesses, enchanted kings.
A
b
ook is like a
w
indowsill, where breezy thoughts are never still.
A
b
ook is like an

A

A

c
lock that speaks the times but never talks.
A
b

o
pen
l
etter, when read again the friendship's better.
A
b
ook is like an
a
pple
c
ore with seeds inside for growing more.
A
b

t
rusted
f
riend that keeps its secret to the end.
Warning
By: Marcus Reid

When I am old
I will be happy
With a
car
which doesn't go, and doesn't suit me.
And I shall spend my pension on
cars
and
skittles
And
land
, and say we've no money for
house
.
I shall sit down on the
stairs
when I'm tired
And gobble up samples of
beef
and press alarm bells
And run my stick along
the side of a tree
And make up for the sobriety of my youth.
I shall go out in my
pants
in the rain
And pick
carrots
in other people's gardens
And learn to
fly
.

You can wear
yellow
shirts and grow
strong
And eat three pounds of
meat
at a go
Or only two and
more skittles
for a week
And hoard
food
and
drinks
and
trash
and things in
boxes.

But now we must have clothes that keeps us
warm
And pay our rent and not
eat
in the street
And set a good example for the children.
We must have
chinese
dinner and read the papers.

But maybe I ought to practice a little now?
So people who know me are not too
scared
and
sad
When I suddenly I am old,
and crazy
.






3 Stanza Poem
By: Marcus Reid

I would like to explore the world
But I am way to lazy
I would have to be crazy.

I like the forest
I'm amazed by bugs
So I might just get some hugs

I don't no what say
I like to sight see
So have a nice day.


Cinquain

Tree's

Drifting away in the wind
They will come back soon
