My Favorite Thing…

After a long and much needed break, poetry resumes at Hale Elementary. For our first day back after the holidays, we celebrated by writing  poems about some of our favorite things in the world!

When you enter the game,

you spawn

in a forest

with trees, grass, and clouds

made of tiny pixels in a cube world

which is hyperrealistic.

First thing to do

is make sure you have enough food.

That’s when you start hunting.

You mostly hunt hen, horses, sheep,

and other animals in the game

(depends on what edition you bought).

You can use your hands to kill the animals

though there is no blood.

And you can see the animal turning red

and back normal again.

My favorite scene

from my favorite book called “sisters”

is when Raina and her little sister got pets.

They both got a goldfish.

The goldfish both died

after a few weeks

so their dad got them a chameleon

and bought crickets for it to eat

but instead the crickets

ate all the chameleons guts

right out.

The chameleon was more like a

big, green lizard

instead of a colorful chameleon.
