In Winter I get up at night
And dress by yellow candle light.
In Summer,quite the other way,
I have to go to bed by day.

I have to go to bed and see
The birds still hopping on the tree,
Or hear the grown-up people's feet
Still going past me in the street.

And does it not seem hard to you,
When all the sky is clear and blue,
And I should like so much to play,
To have to go to bed by day?

 Bed In summer

By: Robert Louise Stevonson

Poerty Dig

Night and light-rhyme

The 2nd , 9th and 11th stanzas all start with the word "and" -repetition

I have to go to bed-refrain

Birds still hopping on the tree-imagery

The reason why I picked this poem was because it reminds me of how much fun it is when it's summer. It just shows that even though its like 100+ degrees, summer could also be really fun. As you are reading the poem, you can picture yourself in the setting.

Introduction Poem

Introduction Poem

I am thirteen years old.

I play soccer.

I ride horses.

My brother is playful.

We always get along. 

Time has always gone fast for me.

I have broken my arm twice.

My aunt has five children

I am Brianna Morales.

Very sunny day 

So hot I'm melting

So hot like lava.

from the big oak tree

as I sit ontop of the tall grass.

Cinquian Poem

12-25-99

Gum,

chewy,

sticky,

The taste overwhelms me,

sometimes it's hard to chew with braces,

but' at the end it's always worth it.

 

Number Poem

There once was a young girl named Cat

She was always afraid of being fat

Now everyday she goes to the gym

And trys to get slim

But before she can do so,she has to loose the butterfat.

Limerick Poem

Nature

It's a beautiful thing

We go outside and it's right there

But we do not seem to notice it

With trees growing all around us

Birds flying in the air

Flowers of many colors with sweet scents

Animals resting in the shade

Water flowing through rivers,lakes and oceans

Fish swimming in the flowing water

Forests growing high into the sky

We all must try to keep it safe

It's a beautiful thing

Mythical Beast Poem

As I was getting ready to go outside

A big huge cracker that was, bigger than a skyscraper attacked me

It smelled worst than a sewage pipe

It was a gold fish cracker

It's beatty eyes,orange and cheesy smell

The gold fish sneezed cheddar cheese all over me

It was to sticky for me to get out and fight back

And I was too weak becuase I hate the smell of cheddar

It's cheddarness nibbled me to bits

The gold fish threatened to sneeze on me again

With all existing cheeses

It's cheddarness smell was like smelling gross socks

He took something out of his fin

And it was a bin

Of feathers to sneeze on me and as he was about to sneeze, I woke up and it was all a dream

Doodle Poem 

Epitaph Poem

Here's to my pencil.

I lost it in Mrs.Edge's class.

You weren't as sharp as my other pencils.

That dullness and orageness

Along the side of you

You did'nt compare to my shiny pen

With it's skinny orange wood

That glares in the light

But I think of you every time I look at my shiny pen.

 

Two -Tone Poem

Some days I am sea blue

relaxed and peaceful,

I'm a light breeze

open for whatever lies ahead

 

Other days I am sun red

active and ready to go on an adventure

I'm another Indiana Jones

But, remember I'm always active and always have been

 

But watch out everyone,

             cause I'm feeling powerful today!

Backword Poem

Because I want to practice

Because I like to play

Because making a goal is awsome

Because the lessons are really neat

Because the coaches are totally cool.

I like soccer.

Blackout Poem

Name: Shel Silverstein 

Birth Date: September 25,1930

Birthplace;Chicago Illinois

He mostly composes poems with alliteration and rhyme.

Poem:

Spaguatti, spaguetti, all over the place,

Up to my elbows-up to my face,

Over the carpet and under the chairs,

Into the hammock and wound round the stairs,

Filling the bathtub and covering the desk,

Making the sofa a mad mushy mess.

 

 

The party is ruined,I'm terribly worried,

The guest have all left (unless they're all buried).

I told them, "Bring presents." I said, 'Throw Confetti."

I guess they heard wrong

'Cause they all threw spaguetti!
