Food Poems: “It makes me feel like I’m in heaven…”

Food! Glorious food! This week we talked about all of the delicious foods we love to eat, and used our five senses to describe what it is about them that makes our mouths water and our bellies grumble. Delicacies like strawberry cheesecake, dumplings and cake were at the top of our lists. Enjoy this week’s poets!

I like food

the food I like the most is 

strawberry cheesecake

it looks like an upside down 


it tastes like strawberry cheese

it smells like strawberry cheese

I go to the mall to eat it

A memory is eating cheese

it makes me feel 

like I’m in heaven

Cake looks like 2 circles on top of each other

it tastes good

it smells delicious

I get it from Walmart

I wish it would rain cakes

so I could lay in it.

Dumplings look like chicken 

wrapped in a blanket

And it tastes like chicken 

wrapped in noodles

and it smells so fresh 

And I get it from the Chinese place

A blanket 

a white blanket


Cheese Cake Monster

Cheese cake is a good food

it puts me in the mood

“Food, food, food!” 

said the monster

“Where is my cheese cake?

It is my mate cake.”

It is good with fruit and cheese on the bottom 

it is delectable and tasty.
