Food Poems

Food glorious food! This week our after school Poetry Club wrote about all things yum. We talked about comfort foods, foods that make us feel at home and foods that are important to the different cultures we come from.


Ohh Mac N Cheese

Ohh Mac N Cheese

how you make my day a yellow sunshine

with one bite I get a tasteful sun light.

My mouth inside is like a seasoned

happy taste-fullness.


Yellow sunshine,

you are the combo that goes with everything to me.

You are the sound of a good

baked mac n cheese.

If it was any pasta that

I could create, it would always be

mac n cheese.


You are like my mood changer

my sadness would always

turn into a cheesy happiness.

Ohhh mac n cheese how you

make my day a yellow sunshine.
