Christmas poems

1

Hi, today I wrote 2 poems about Christmas. Here is the first one:

Christmas day is great

You get a lot of presents

Joy is in the air.

As you may (or may not) have guessed, that was a haiku. The next one is a rhyming poem:

It was Christmas day, I ran out of my room

I turned on the light so I could see in the gloom 

The presents were there, under the tree

And, best of all, about half was for me

While opening, I said to all that could hear

Merry Christmas, and a happy new year.

That is all for today, and no, I cannot give you my autograph.

This is Joe ‘Peanut’ Kolwalyniski with the news. There has been 3… no, wait 2 six room poems made by two kids. They are called Samuel(who happends to be the guy who hires me) and Adam who lives on earth. Here is the first one done by Samuel:

 

Tall.

The oak tree stands tall, taller than the rest.

Shadows.

It’s shadows stretch long in the afternoon sun.

Wind.

The wind makes the oak tree’s leaves rustle.

Night.

As the sun sets, noon turns into night.

And this one was done by Adam, who lives on earth:

When I split my head open it was bright and sunny. My sister was rushing to my mum and it was funny. I was on the ground thinking to myself why did my brother bump me and I was feeling worried. There was blood everywhere.

Again, in writing class, as a warm up, Lee gave us each cards with a feeling on it and we had to write a paragraph about that feeling. I got greedy this time. Here it is:

A huge meal was spread around me. I licked my lips and started on a bowl of pudding. Two hours later I finished. I didn’t feel well, so I went to bed.

I was so happy. I had completed the music with no mistakes. I would pass the exam and learn new pieces for the next one. Just two more exams then I can teach piano. “Yes!” I said to myself.
