Alex, Your poem was great and it gave really good details about money. -Mrs. Tiggs' class
Claire-I like the lines that say "soft fur nurtures the soul." What fantastic language! -Mrs. Tiggs

Stopping By Woods on a Snowy Evening

Outside trembling in the cold.
I should've never went I was told.

Dark in the woods without any prey.
Sleeping on the freezing floor all day.

Couldn't find my home.
It looked like I was in the cold, cold Rome.

I had a long way to go.
They told me so.

The Pasture


The Slope
By Timothy Hatley Mrs. Martin's Class Detroit, MI
Inspired by: The Pasture
By Robert Frost

It's deep and steep
I go down so fast
That I see no grass
Follow me if you would
As a speed down the slope
Shreading snow and from my tracks
As children threw rocks at my back
Follow me if you would

Street Music

Calm Music
By Daniel Dixon Mrs. Martin's Class Detroit, MI
Inspired by: Street Music
By Arnold Adoff

I am all alone listening to calm music,
But Man Stomping
A Comes In.
He turns off the music.



I turn on the music,
He turns off the music.


I turn on the music,
The boom box goes
B O O M!!!!!!!!!!

Calm music.

Love That Boy

Love That Girl
Kelly Carpenter
Mrs. Martin UPA Detroit

Love that girl,
like a fish likes to swim
I said love that girl
like a fish likes to swim
Love to call her in the morning
love to call her
"hey there, Kim

She talk like her mama
Smiles like her Auntie lin
Said she talk like her mama
Smiles like Auntie Lin
Smiles a lot when happy
When sad, acts like a fish with no fin

Her grandma likes to hold her
likes to feed her chocolate cake
Said her grandma likes to hold her
likes to feed her chocolate cake
She tries to feed her a plastic cake
but she always knows its fake

She got long ways to go
before the setting sun
Said she got long ways to go
before the setting sun
She'll be a good fashionist
because her name is kim
