Dolphin
Dolphin
You swim in the sea
Dolphin
You could never hurt me
Dolphin
You jump in the sky
Dolphin
So very high!
Dolphin
You love the water
Dolphin
I could never alter
Dolphin
You're like a star
Dolphin
Oh yes you are!

A Poem for All the Seasons

Winter is bare there's snow everywhere
Spring is green when the birds love to sing.
Summer is hot and dry,
But who knows why
Fall is the season of loving & caring,
It's also the season of giving & sharing.
Christmas is fun for everyone,
And Easter is too!
The 4th of July is when the sun shines bright on me & you.
And Thanksgiving is great too!
I wrote this poem just for you!

The what if poem 

As I lay in my bed a little whatif crawled into my head.

Whatif I am late to school? 
What if my classmates think I'm a fool? 
What if I'm not in science on time? 
What if my locker is covered in grime? 
What if I dirty my brand knew tie? 
What if I fall over and start to cry? 
What if I lose all my important math books? 
What if my classmates give me nasty looks? 
What if my teachers are very mean? 
What if my face turns bright lime green? 
Wait I think theyv'e left me alone, to go and find another home.

Guernsey 
Not many people know about Guernsey 
You try to tell them and they think your zany 
Now listen closely and listen now 
I will start with a guernsey cow. 
They give us milk and builds up our bones 
But they are real fussy and take over our homes 
Now they may be animals but their clever you know 
They sleep in our beds and make us feel low 
At the dead ofd night one by one 
They creep into houses when the owners are gone 
They eat all our foods and take back their milk 
They wear your best pyjamas 
Yes! The ones made of silk 
So don't be stupid next time you see a cow 
Tell them you know their plan 
And tell them now! 
But next on my list lets not delay 
Are the tomatoes you see 
Yes, that's what I say. 
They are evil you know you better beware 
Or will be in for a scare! 
They are true Guernsey tomatoes, with the accent you know 
But if you feed them a little they grow and grow 
They take your bicycles and your cars 
They fight with the cows and have massive wars 
So next time you come to Guernsey 
Think again go to Jersey (boooooooooo!)

The Cow

 A Cow was running round the field one day

Chase the cow, they would play,

When all of a sudden, there was a munch

Another cow had eaten her lunch

 

With one flash, the cow ran and ran

To bang the other cow on the head with a pan

The other cow ran like lightning

Not to mention, bumped into a tree

The cow that didn’t do it, laughed

Ha ha hee hee

 

That cow’s name was daisy

She was also very lazy, wild ,loony and of course crazy.

Her favourite food was grass Bolognese

To find it, she had to go into a maze

 

Round the corners, she would go

Singing, “Grass Bolognese Is for me, ho ho”

Up and down the bendy puzzle

Giving the hedge a great big nuzzle,

Daisy May would sing and shout

“Big, fat , cow coming about.

 

When FINALLY she got to the Bolognese patch

Giving her poor head a scratch

“Why am I here?” she asked surprised

To a group of cows dressed in disguise

“We don’t know!” the cows replied

Walking to the other side

And then…..

“Oh yes, I remember now”

said Daisy may, the big fat cow

“It was for Grass Bolognese.

That’s why I came through this long, green maze

Questions

head, head, think, think
questions to be answered questions to think
night, night, day,day
why do we have night and day
 
small,small,big,big
two opposites to call
