I Wish Poems @ Moos Academy Fall 2019

In the first week of our Fall 2019 poetry class, we discussed what the Hands on Stanzas poetry class residency is (art class with words) and we can expect during our time together – creative writing, playfulness, and experimentation with words. We discussed the difference between the poetic line (a single row of words) and a storyline. We read, discussed, and wrote a wish poem together as a class before taking the time to write our own wish poems. Each week there will be 2 poems from each class published to our Hands on Stanzas blog, and every student will have an opportunity to see their written work published on our blog in the weeks to come. Enjoy this week’s published poems!

I Wish

I wish I was tiny like an ant

I also wish that I could fly like a bird in the sky

I wish that I was a star in the night

I wish that I had a lot of money



I Wish

I wish I had a Nissan because I like those kinds of cars

and the color I would want is either red or white and

I wish it was still summer because no one was sick

now everyone is getting sick because its winter

I wish it was Halloween again

I miss Halloween

because we can get candy

I Wish


I wish to be a poet

I wish to be an alien

I wish to be a pirate

I wish to have a plane

I wish to have the moon

I wish to have a unicorn

I wish for a bigger room

I wish for a treehouse

I wish to see my grandma in heaven

I wish to be an ant

I wish to be an ice cube

I wish to win the lottery

I wish for a Nintendo

I wish for a cat

I wish for superpowers



I wish to be a ninja

I wish to meet a marshmallow in person

I wish to obtain the power to CLONE

I wish to be in an anime called Tokyo Ghoul

I wish to obtain the power to TELEPORT

I wish for a new Xbox 2
