An Excerpt from "Following the Sun"
By: Anne Keli
Bright sun kisses the purple mountains.
I open my eyes and find that night has gone.
Morning comes now, silent but strong.
Night is spent. The moon is nothing more
Than a distant shadow of light nearly lost
In the glowing hues of daybreak.
The fight of darkness is weak.
At long last the shining round
Ascends to reveal an endless day.
Ode To Cheese,
Which make us taste,
The greatest of flavors,
the wackiest of whack.
Ode To Cheese,
Blue, Gorgonzola,
American and Cheddar.
Ode To Cheese,
Beja and Feta,
In all types of weather.
Excerpt from "Ode to Cheese"
Author Unknown
Ah, look at all the lonely people
Ah, look at all the lonely people

Eleanor Rigby picks up the rice in the church where a wedding has been,
Lives in a dream
Waits at the window, wearing the face that she keeps in a jar by the door
Who is it for?

All the lonely people
Where do they all come from?
All the lonely people
Where do they all belong?

Father Mckenzie writing the words of a sermon that no one will hear
No one comes near.
Look at him working, darning his socks in the night when there's nobody there
What does he care?
Excerpt from Eleanor Rigby
By: The Beatles

And found that his dream had come true!

Had a Hello Kitty T-shirt not that long ago
Even, a backpack with Kitty holding a flower
Lots of pens and pads adored my desk
Loved that cute little cat, really I did
Overtime, I had to grow up, sadly

Kitty is for kids, so it is said
Instead, I now have the real thing
The fat one is called Pearl Kitty
The skinny one is called Violet Kitty
Yes, I kept the backpack, it was just too cute
"Hello Kitty"
Concrete/Picture poetry is poetry in which the arrangement of words creates an image relating to what the poem is about.
