Poetry is like a rainbow; it is made when opposites work together to create something beautiful.
Poetry poetry poetry
Is like reading a book when it is raining outside
Patter patter patter
Poetry is flowers blooming with wet raindrops on the petals.
Poetry is happiness.
Poetry is like going to a new place — there are always new things.
Poetry is like a chocolate chip cookie. You have no idea where the letters will go and in which order.
Poetry is like pieces of grass waving in the wind. Poetry is like dandelions blowing away.
Poetry is like ice cream — each scoop is special and has its own flavor or detail.
Poetry is like a kitten chasing a ball of yarn.
Poetry chases the rain of doubt away, and lets the sun of joy shine.
Poetry is like oatmeal — occasionally bland, but occasionally sweet.
Poetry is like a present; you never know what’s inside. Poetry is when your imagination comes to life and has a mind of its own.
- Amy V.
Poetry is the ocean. Poetry is the universe.
Poetry is like the ocean, its depths unknown. Poetry is like fire, spreading warmth.
Poetry is a field of ideas and emotions.

In January I play in the snow
In February I go to Lake Tahoe
In March I use a bow and arrow
In April for my birthday I eat cookie dough
In May I go with the flow
In June on the 12th I go on a canoe and row
In July I watch the fireworks glow
In August I watch Kung Fu Panda and Po
In September I figure out my foe
In October I stay up late eating candy and Oreos
In November I stay up watching my favorite TV show
In December I play in the snow
Recipe for a Poem
First, take air from a day full of feelings.
Add the beauty of nature and butterfly wings.
Don’t forget to take some clouds and add them to the mixture as well.
Mix everything with ink and dip in your feather and write what you feel.
The most important is to use your imagination.

Recipe for Friendship
Using 1 tablespoon of charm
and 3 quarts of care
Then a gallon of kindness
and 3 gallons of laughter.
Next, throw in one adventure
Where we worked together
And 10,000 Christmas trees
That provoke those memories to me.
1 moon, a billion stars, and the night sky
That looked down upon us.
30 cars that we saw
And finally 2 small trees
That we danced together with.
The last ingredient is 1 football
That shows the 90 recesses we spent together
And that’s the recipe for how
This robber stole my heart.
Recipe for Internet Cake

1 quart of Wikipedia.

Mix, stir, whip, and beat it
Shape the batter and throw it in the oven.
When it’s done, decorate with
10 google images,
1 search bar,
and 1 Gmail.

All part of the oddest family.

Little Miss Gingerbread dressed up in the most extravagant way,
And she left her gingerbread house, one fine, sunny day.
Her dress was made from a fine gelatin,
And she wore a hat made from a mint thin,
She wore a pair of gloves and a muff,
Both made from pieces of a cream puff.
Her shawl was the most beautiful thing,
Why, it was made from butter cream frosting!
Miss Gingerbread started to daydream of fondant silk,
But she didn’t pay attention and fell into the river of buttermilk.

Ruth Raisin Bran and Fred Frosted Flakes were living a normal life
Until Helen Honey Nut Cheerios came to them with a knife
She devoured the cereal like a cannibal would
Then Landon Lucky Charms said that not what she should.

But Helen won the fight.
She ate the town, but Reynold Rice Krispies thought it was a movie thriller.
Then he discovered she was a cereal killer!
Apricot pie is rude and sassy,
Apple pie is kind and classy.
Pumpkin is often shy and mellow,
Pecan is a sweet but nutty fellow.

I’m so stuffed that I might die!
