Dear Valentine, Will You Be Mine?

The 5th grade poets from Avondale/Logandale wrote anonymous poems to their classmates for St. Valentine’s Day. After studying rhyme, they used the ABAB rhyme pattern to create friendships poems.  They then put all of their poems into a basket. One by one, with their eyes closed, they choose a random poem from the basket. After sharing the poems, they returned them to the author. Enjoy!

You are a great friend

You are sweeter than a butterfly

I like to spend time with you until the end

You are higher than the sky




You have been a great classmate

You are my fave

You make me happy like cake

I hope you don’t change


Anthony G.


You are funny like memes

You are always there for me

You make me scream

With excitement and happy


Eva Meza


Did you fall from the sky?

Are you art?

Because you are a cutie pie

You put an arrow in my heart


David Rivera


Dear Person,

You are so cool and so kind

You are too good to be true

Like a diamond on the sky

You are the I chose


Julian M.


How is your day?

You must be nice

I hope your day is great

You are as small as mice
