Your color is a brilliant green

You’re a lean mean fighting machine

You will eat your enemies and spit them out

You will protect Mario without a doubt

You are the best

You’ll never rest

Till you know Mario is safe and sound

At home in his castle on the ground

By Kristine Ekenes

ode to my computer
Ode To My Computer

You come in different sizes, colors and soon perhaps flavors too

You make my fingers cramp from punching your soft letters

Your icons confused me when I first looked at you

You don’t mind if I lay you on my lap or if I set you on the ground

You take me places I never thought I could, MySpace for one

OH computer how can I live without you

If I need you for my everyday survival

You make me happy when you function

but drive me crazy when you get a virus

I wish a virus was like a simple cold

So I could cure you with a warm soup and that’s all

Now, I have spent all my savings on you

But what can I do if I need you

By BianeyOyos

ode to my sister
Ode To My Sister

You are a heart of forgiveness

When people have done you wrong

You are a free spirit

That is not to be held down

You are an eager soul

Taking on the world

You are a creator of happiness

In all of those around you

You are a trustworthy person

To be a keeper of secrets

You are a kind of teacher

Who has taught me right from wrong along the way

You are an encourager of hopes and dreams

You are not only my sister

You are also one of my best friends

Growing up, I saw you as a queen

Eight years older than me

I constantly look up to you

You are a shoulder to cry on

When my heart is weeping

You are the light in a dark,

Long, windy tunnel

You are a warm, caring phone call

In the darkest nights

You are a comforting smile

On a path of struggles

You are giver of advice

When some is much needed

By Danielle Linker
