Greetings Galileo poetry friends and followers! For the past 2 weeks, we have been working on poems related to memories of music. Here are a few more of our poems. Do theses poems remind you of your own memory of music?

Stormy Stank
Ezra P.

I was in the car
with my dad
listening to rock as I got mad
as I sank I stank
standing by a storm

winds surrounded me
I could feel the rain
          was so mad
          made a hurricane

slashed winds
open earth
sunk and stank
out of my mind
ate up the world
in my mind


When I was listening to meme music
Damien S.

When I was listening to meme music
with my pet cat
in my own room
it was an iphone alarm
it was a relaxing sound
I saw my cat dancing
I felt the wind breeze
I felt the carpet on my feet
I felt the headphones on my ears

Music falls
Sariya H.

I hear the loud bells,
   When they fell
      it was loud,
We saw the birds,
   the piano played,
We swayed,
   music stopped,
then we dropped.


Grace C.

as I was on my bed
the radio played jazz
my fav

I put the music

while the music was blasting
I smelled
the sweet (but bitter)
coffee my dad was making
(he’s addicted to it)

I heard piano

they went low, then high
loud, then quiet

I bit into my soft banana
while I swayed ‘cause
I was following
the music

I swayed while
   my brothers

they moved to
   the beat
they slowed down
   then danced fast
following the JAZZY
