Soccer is more than a sport
By: Natalie Bomyea
My favorite hobby is soccer.
It’s really fun to me.
My nickname is the vacuum,
Because I clean up everybody’s mess.

It’s a compliment I assume.
My coach says that nickname fits me best.
Whenever I play, my mouth gets dry as a hot desert.
The more I play, the more I feel like an expert.

When the other team scores you heat up like the sun.
But when you score you feel like you are being watched by everyone.
The feeling of winning makes you feel proud.
Soccer is more than a sport, it is a passion.

You will never be Forgotten
By: Natalie Bomyea
I have a feeling deep inside,
that will never go away.
You have changed my life for the better,
up until your very last day.

I miss you so much.
It took a lot of time and strength
to feel somewhat better.
I’ll never be the same without you.

Love is like a swing.
The higher you swing,
The harder it is to stop.
I could never stop.

I’m always going to miss
the way you hid your reeses from us.
The way you always begged my parents to stay,
Because you never wanted us to leave.

I miss you a lot.
Like more than the sun misses the moon.
September 21, 2010 was the last day.
I didn’t even get to say goodbye.

Always remember,
I love you more grandma.
You will always be in my heart.
Thank you for everything.

Shall I compare thee to a summer’s day?
Thou art more lovely and more temperate:
Rough winds do shake the darling buds of May,
And summer’s lease hath all too short a date;
Sometime too hot the eye of heaven shines,
And often is his gold complexion dimm'd;
And every fair from fair sometime declines,
By chance or nature’s changing course untrimm'd;
But thy eternal summer shall not fade,
Nor lose possession of that fair thou ow’st;
Nor shall death brag thou wander’st in his shade,
When in eternal lines to time thou grow’st:
So long as men can breathe or eyes can see,
So long lives this, and this gives life to thee.
I was not happy
with the rain
until my eye caught
fire wet leaves -
a mysterious
watercolor gift
on this broken road.
Excerpt from Macbeth
An Ode to My Eyes
Oh, eyes, you are forever there
Right above my nose,
Right below my eyebrows.
You are still very special.
Even if you don't see very well.
Eyes, I am glad I have you,
Glad that you let me see the world.
And all the little things in it.
If I was blind it wouldn't be the same,
I wouldn't see the sparkling sea,
The big tree in my yard,
Or the shinny sunrise.
I would never see the excitement of the circus,
Or the gentle flowers.
So eyes, I just want to tell you once again,
I'm glad to know you're right there,
Right above my nose.
Spooky Night
Oh me Oh My a ghost
no ship but I see coming a pirate
their breath the scent of candy
away they scramble with frightening cries
Look across the moon flies a witch
and dangled from it's web a spider!

a huge black and spotted spider
watch as it wiggles towards the ghost
swatted now by the broom of the littlest witch
gobbled down by the skinny pirate
way down in the swamp an animal cries
here all the cries are for candy

bowls and caldrons filled with candy
webs hanging low wove by a fat plastic spider.
oh No a pink clad princess cries
to a hangman and a green ghost
Run away screams the pirate
as from the darkness flies a blonde witch

she's skinny for a witch
we should stuff her with candy
we could sell her to the pirate
or feed her to the spider
give her to me moans the ghost
we laugh at her cries

we cackle at the echo of her cries
we admire the warted nose of the witch
what a pitiful ghost
begging for more candy
trembling before the huge spider
holding tight to the hand of his sister pirate

Pirate after treasureless Pirate
all afraid of the haunting cries
squatting low under the web tangled spider
keeping their eye on the witch
clutching their sacks and buckets of candy
daringly unafraid of the ghost

This years best was a Pirate, the scariest was a witch
our ears ached with the cries for more and more candy
Till the only spooks beneath the spider on our porch, was our own little ghost.

Tomorrow, and tomorrow, and tomorrow,
Creeps in this petty pace from day to day,
To the last syllable of recorded time;
And all our yesterdays have lighted fools
The way to dusty death. Out, out, brief candle!
Life's but a walking shadow, a poor player,
That struts and frets his hour upon the stage,
And then is heard no more. It is a tale
Told by an idiot, full of sound and fury,
Signifying nothing.
By: Caitlin Haas
I loved to come home after school because
I knew you would always be there
You always knew how to cheer me up
You were like a best friend more than anyone

And then one day when I came home
I looked around and felt alone
I had no one to cheer me up
My mom came down and told me the news

She told me that you had cancer
And we had to let you go
Suddenly I started to cry
And I was really scared

We went to the vet
And said our goodbyes
I was there when
You shut your eyes

Then I felt like a hopeless person
Wanting her dog
But I will never forget you
And I’ll always love you
Free verse
I love to cheer
If you watch me
I think it’s pretty clear
You will agree

Just watch me in the air
But if I fall
Stand up from your chair
And make the call

I also tumble
Which is pretty fun
Unless i stumble
And then i’m done

People say it’s not a sport
But it is to me
So I don't need your support
Just let me be.
