Couplets, Quatrains, and Limericks
True wit is nature to advantage dress'd;
What oft was thought, but ne'er so well express'd. — Alexander Pope
"I cannot go to school today."Said little Peggy Ann McKay.
"I have the measles and the mumps,a gash, a rash and purple bumps.“
A Good Day
I love ta see the morning sunthat's how I tell the days begun.Birds all singing a happy songit tis the place where I belong.Far from school without the nun.
The Man From Aruba
There once was a man from Aruba,
Whose favorite hobby was scuba.
Every day he would wish,
He could spear a big fish.
But settled instead for canned tuna.
PANIC! AT 6:00 A.M.
Which should I choose,
red flats or pink shoes?
Shoes are better
when the weather’s wetter.
What do I wear,
a hat or a bow in my hair?
“the bow looks cute,”
said the boy with the flute.
Which should I use,
a bag that’s small or big and blue?
The blue bag holds it all.
I just hope I don’t fall.
What do I pick,
clear gloss or lipstick?
Lip gloss will shine,
and that is just fine.

Free Verse, Acrostic, and Didactic
The River's a Kaleidoscope
Late on a cool fall nightwhile sitting on the river bankI noticed how the ripples cast a different texture to the setting sunThe colors of the skyjust right for this seasonRed, orange, yellow, purple even a tinge of blueThe river seems to mix themlike a kaleidoscope Seems there is no end to beautyas this endless array goes on and onThen the distant sound of the frogs and cricketskeeping time to this dancing spectacularThen my heart goes quiet my pulse slows downI lay back to thank my maker
Contagious,A biding charm,Riding around,Oblivious of all,Under the carouselSmiling broad,ExcitementL asting forever.
Can I make cookies to put out for Santa?
Here are the stocking’s to put on the fire place.
Read the Christmas cards from mom- mom.
I’m going to put tinsel on the tree.
Singing Christmas carols are the best.
The family is on their way to the Christmas dinner.
Making the turkey is a hard task to accomplish.
As Christmas day comes eagerness is a major factor.
Seeing all the presents under the tree gives me butterflies in my stomach.
To Spread Love
Start with acceptance.
If you've done any wrongs,
Then head to repentance.
Embrace those most unique.
Teach them to use their voices,
And not be afraid to speak.
Spread love to those in need.
Make them feel special and open,
Your kitchen, bring one in to feed.
Live out your days this way,
Not "an eye for an eye".
Never listen to what others say.
