A cool breezy day

The sun peaks out from the clouds 

Preserving their warmth 

She was very happy

Seeing her mothers face again

She was enlightened

winter

From rolling hills

Blows down the light, first breath

of wintry wind..look up and scent

the snow

 

 

There once was a boy named kyle

he hit his head on the tile

he told the nurse he had a boo boo

she said we shall fix it with glue

and his visit went to his file

Though the beginning was scary

and the end is saddening

the time in between will never be forgotten

roller coasters of ups and downs

brought us all together

we might not get along

but we will always be connected

by the three years of middle school

we experienced the newness of sixth grade

the adventures of seventh grade

and the now we will go through eighth 

the end is approaching

but the years will never be forgotten

where we spent two long years

soon to be three

here at mckamy middle school

I had a dream about a unicorn

It had a sparkly rainbow horn

It was about to fly away

But I begged and asked it to stay

We watched the clouds pass by

Over our heads oh so high

We flew up into the air

And then below we saw a bear

It was eating a pear

It tried to throw the pear at us

but the pear was blocked by a bus

Then it threw a cherry pie

It hit the unicorn in the eye

And now our hearts are torn
