Body Stanzas

This week we celebrated our amazing bodies! We started by asking what students thought the most powerful part of their body was. From feet, to brains, to our hearts, thwy did such a great job of letting their imaginations run wild and explaining why our bodies are so awesome. Enjoy this week’s poems!

My Heart


My heart that is as loud 

as a lion and lions are pretty

loud. My heart is as squishy as my brain. 

If my heart was alive it would have muscles. 

The weights are one millions pounds

Every day he does one million pushups

He also does one million sit-ups a day. 

My Heart

Peyton Rose G.

My heart is a best friend

that beats

it’s as loud as a drum 

it helps me stay alive

your heart makes you happy by 

giving you love, it loves you. 

Your heart gives you oxygen

my heart loves Valentine’s Day

your heart is strong, it can beat and it can give you love. 

Your heart loves you and itself very much 

Your heart gives you love everyday. 

My heart is talented at giving love 

to the whole city. 

My Eyes


My eyes are beautiful diamonds

My heart is strong

My face is beautiful 

My legs are smooth and quick

My heart beats like a drum 

I love my lips 

and they are beautiful 

I am strong

I love my whole body

I am beautiful.
