A Daschund Dog

My dog has a special
twist,
She can't go a day
unkissed.
She's not a normal
dog,
Her furs the color of a
log.
Her tails as pointy as a stick,
She'd get a 10 from a .....

I

I
hear America singing
, the varies
carols I
hear
, those of mechanics, each one
singing
his, as it should be,
Blithe and Strong
,
The carpenter
singing
his, as he makes ready for
work, or leaves off work.
-Walt Whitman

An emo to a happy

Neither

the
wind

passing through
-Christiana Rossetti

I’ve Got a Dog

I’ve got a dog
as thin as a rail
,
He’s got fleas
all over his tail
;
Every time his
tail goes flop
,
The fleas on
the bottom all
hop to the top
.
-Anonymous
Easter

The air is
like a butterfly
With
frail blue wings.
The
happy earth
looks at
the
sky and sings.

Fame is a Bee
Fame is a bee
It has a song-
It
has a sting-
Ah, to its wing
-Emily Dickinson
The Moon’s the North Wind’s Cooky

The Moon’s the
North Wind’s cooky.
He bites it
day by day,
Until there’s but a
rim of scraps
That
crumble all away
.

The South Wind is a baker.
He kneads clouds in his den,
And bakes a crisp new moon that…greedy
North…Wind…eats…again!
-Lindsey Vachel
Keys
I went for a ride with my Uncle Jay
He
slammed
the door shut and we were on our way
Then he revved the gas pedal, which was on the floor
What a lovely day, could I ask for more?
I wanted a hot dog so he slammed on the brake
It belched out a
screech
, for goodness sake
We finished our hot dogs in record time
We were out of that place by half past nine
He misplaced his keys
We were in a mess
I must admit, he started to stress
He picked up his soda started to
sip
Eager to resume our wonderful trip
From inside the cup he felt something
shake
A closer look he surely did take
His keys had fallen into that refreshing soft drink
And we figured it out when we heard the
clink
-unknown

City Street
Beep beep
goes the taxi as the light turns green
He is in a hurry so he makes a huge scene
The police car let out a mighty wail

Honking
your horn sir can land you in jail!’
Well that is not entirely true
But it can surely get you into a mighty big stew
A bus goes by with a mighty roar
With a sleeping passenger who started to
snore
A traffic policeman
whistled his whistle
The sound of that whistle made everyone bristle
It is true that the city is a busy, busy place
But said another way, It’s just a faster pace
-unknown
Personification
An attribution of a personal nature
or human charaistic to something.

Through the snow I came
down, as the pond was frozen,
our ski's were waxed, and as
our feet were clothin', the crowd
showed up, to win the gold.
But the silver shined on,as the
bronze took hold a metal of honor.
We wear at our neck.
Ski-board in hand.
So what the heck.
The torch burns bright.
As it travels its distance.
Lighting our skies.
For The Winter Olympics..




Cherry blossom
Loveliest of trees
, the cherry
now, is
hung with bloom
along the bough, And stands
about the
woodland ride
Wearing white for Easter tide
.
-A.H Houseman

Kiss by Anonymous

I am
sending you a kiss
That with land on your knee
,
Climb up your leg
,
Scramble over you back
,
And hide in your hair.
Then, when you are about to fall asleep,
It will bite you gently on your neck
And whisper in your ear, ‘I love you’.
Hyperbole
Appetite
In a house the size of a postage stamp
lived a man as big as a barge.
His mouth could drink the entire river
You could say it was rather large
For dinner he would eat a trillion beans
And a silo full of grain,
Washed it down with a tanker of milk
As if he were a drain.
-- Sharon Hendricks


Summertime is Here
My tongue is a piece of sandpaper
I’m dissolving into a puddle.
I want to dive into a snowdrift
Though I’m sure that would befuddle
Open me up, my organs are cooked
I think I’m now well done.
You can fry an egg upon my brow
As I melt away in the sun!
- Sharon Hendricks

PEEL ME A GRAPE!

Two

on my plate look
like lost nipples looking
for their mammaries.
I popping them in my
mouth delighting
in both senses and
there is only
half left.

Limerick

A poem presenting with rhyme
and which follows a rhythm in time
need not be what we call
a true Limerick at all
-Herbert Nehrlich


There once was a very cute kitten,
Who liked to sleep in a mitten.
As she slept the dog licked her,
But this didn’t quite fit her
So she climbed out as if she’d been bitten.
-Jane Meyer

Warning
When I am an
old lady
with a style which doesn't go, and doesn't suit me. And I shall spend my pensions on
jelwery
and
clothes
and
purses
and say we've no money for we are rich. I shall sit on the
couch
when im tired and gobble up samples of
candy
and press alarm bells and run my stick along
the ground
and make up sobriety of my youth I shall go out in my
bathing suit
in the rain and pick
squash
in other peoples gardens and learn to
swim fast.
You can wear
t-shirts
and grow lots of hair and eat three pounds of
pizza
at a go or only s
hower
or
sleep
for a week and hoard
cats
and
dogs
and
people
and things in boxes.
But now we must have clothes that keep us
warm
and pay our rent and not
sleep
in the street and set a good example for the children we must have
a nice
dinner and read the newspapers.
But maybe I ought to practice a little now? so people who know me are not too
jealous
and
mad
when suddenly I am old,
I will be the greatest old lady ever.

I am fast and fun
I am fast and fun
I can dream, dreams that nobody has dreamt before.
I would go on adventures all over the world.
I want to write out my imagination.
I enjoy seeing peace.

I am fast and fun.
I want to fly and taste the air.
I am not afraid to say what I want.
I feel such smooth things that touch my fingers.
I find such pretty things in nature.

I am fast and fun.
I want to be a soccer star.
I think hard about things.
I wonder where we go when we fade.
I feel so great when I help someone.

Forest
Green, calm, nature
Wildlife, adventure, great
People go hiking and camping

Poem of choice

Never look back
Never look back at your past,
The past is the past,
and nothing at last,
Look into the future,
for what you might see,
is you and me forever.
-Unknown


The sun is bright like
the stars int the sky at
night which brightens
up as a light which helps
us see long and right.
