I was so excited to see how Foster Park’s 6th graders finished up their pieces using personification. This week we had poems addressed to the feeling of being mad, to stars, the earth and even the future. Enjoy this week’s poets!
Why do we get mad?
Do we have to
get mad? Why
can’t we be happy?
But no, we have
to get mad.
Mad, how old
I think that mad is sad
How are you mad?
Are you and
Why don’t you move but you are so bright? You shine in the
night, your light brightens up the sky
The sky nice and blue and the stars
fill the sky with light. How are you?
You’re the reason I’m here
How do you give air?
You make me happy.
You make alive.
I’m glad you’re here,
because I wanna
Why do you spin around?
Girl you so colorful you smell like ocean water
I wonder what you thinking right now
you look round with alot of color
it sounds like you’re moving alot
bet you have mixed feelings of what
you need to do.
The ocean, your divine beauty
is unlike anything on earth
Your dancing seems eternal while
it only lasts for mere seconds.
I feel compelled to gaze
at you like you’re queen of this
Are you in the air or are
you in the snow, do you see me
everywhere I go? How old are you,
how tall are you? I never seen
you in real life, but it always
seems like you are in sight. Are
you in my dreams because it
always seems things in my dreams come
to life the very next day. I never
see you in sight.
