“Unique in its own way” Poetry Reflection and Centos with South Loop Poetry Club!

Last week at poetry club, we finished up our unit on poetic forms and took some time to reflect on our work in the past few weeks. Then we used lines from our previous poems to make a cento. Even though we had a small class, we made some beautiful poetry together and were able to take our poems home. Please enjoy these poems from South Loop Poetry Club!

South Loop Poetry Club


By Whitman G.

I feel free

Squirrels favorite snack

I eat my greens and burp often

Moon is very bright

Full of nature

I hear wolves howling at me

Unique in its own way

Flower, tree

By Mia P.

Dirt gets between the

bottom of my shoes

Fields full of lilies

Little golden clouds

Winter trunk of the

fig tree

In the daytime

they flourish

I hear a sound

and dance around

wry quips given significance

by their spotlighting.

Unknown Person

by Morgan F.

I am a dog

must be taken from pre-existing text

Always has my back

She is Emo

Bugs should be loved, yes!

she is Dark
