Rhyme: I Feel Free

Week 4 at Dever was a week to focus on Rhyme. Students wrote pieces about what freedom means to them and used rhyme as their featured poetic device. We learned about rhyme as corresponding sounds.

Freedom doesn’t make me frown

Freedom makes me feel like I’m wearing a crown

Freedom is amazing its like a treat

It’s so really sweet

Freedom makes me feel like a star

Feels like I’m going really far

It doesn’t make me trip

No it doesn’t make me flip


Sports give me good vibes

So crazy it shakes my insides

Freedom doesn’t make me red

It makes me feel good in my head


No it doesn’t make me frown

No it doesn’t bring me down

Freedom really pays

So many things to do in so many ways

Video games makes me escape reality

thats how video games make me be

freedom fills my heard

if it had a taste it would take good like a pop-tart

I feel free while driving to town

Sun rays in my face

Im starting to frown

driving to town


Freedom looks like

Driving in my car

It’s pretty bizarre

I now have a scar

A drive in my car


Freedom feels like

Running the bases


Don’t know what the case is

Running the bases


When I am free I am…

Bike riding with my friends

eating pizza

gonna set new trends

bike riding with my friends
