Love poems!

In Mrs. Robinson-Sanchez’s class, we read Matthew Olzmann’s “Mountain Dew Commercial Disguised as a Love Poem” in class and loved the specificity and humor! Many of us said that being so specific about someone you love was a way to really see them! We drew pictures of people we love to try to think through as many specific details as we could and then wrote them poems modeled after Olzmann’s. Students shared some beautiful things about their loved ones! Here are a few of our love poems:

My Little Sis


Here’s what I’ve got for you my sister.

When we watch Spiderman and

I say Miles Morales you get

angry, when I pick you up after

school, you always wear your

special purple pink polka dot

shirt, when we get home

from school you always want

to play roblox murder mystery,

and when you lose you always

cry that’s why I love

you little sis.

Reasons Why I Miss You…


You bite me everytime we play but

I don’t mind. You’re always hungry

so I am I, you love chasing me

around the car, you always got me

laughing…our neighbor and my

siblings join the fun. We run away

from you we call it tag. We get on the

cars or go back inside everytime I see

you I see you smile I’m just glad you

were mine.

My Best Friend


Here’s what I got, you’re my best friend,

and the reason why because you’re always

making me laugh. You are always there for

me. Then we have done many stuff for me.

You too me to many places. And on my

Birthday. Then we are always hanging

with each other. But you are always

with me each second, every day and each

second in school. They will always

cheer me up when I’m sad. Or call me

when I’m bored and then play many scarey

games together. You make me smile

when you’re always with me and play

together. I really like your art,

which makes me wanna draw and paint just

like you. <3


Two Bestfriends


Both are different

but in a positive way.

A coincidence of both having

a two leap day birthday,

One is sugary, other is salty

But in the end, those two Bestfriends

are always lovable

for each other.
