Diamante Poems    


loud, windy

falling, dropping, echoing

thunder, lightning, cloud, and sunrise

ending, dreaming, fading

bright, clear


                                                                                                         by Anthony




cheerful, joyful

laughing, smiling, sparkling

loving babies, puppies, rainbows

skipping jumping, running

silly, funny


                                                                              by Listella



Haiku Poetry

It is hot outside

My fan is always right there

Blowing around air

by Melvina


Softball is so fun

I like to hit a homerun

The fans like to cheer

by Mary Lee


Lyric Poems

Dream Catchers

As I sleep,

It lets the good dreams through

The bad dreams it keeps.

A pool of good dreams floating in my head

As I lay in my bed

Now I know that no bad dreams come

Just me beating a drum.

by Joe


                   The Horse

There is a horse

a mild, wild horse

who has wings to fly

but not a white horse

a wild, unmild horse

with bat wings and flames,

this wild white horse

does not have small wings

Wait!       it has a horn

Oh, he is a unicorn!

by Nate
