Poet in Residence, The final Installment

Thanks for all the great comments on my earlier "Poet in Residence" posts. Here's the last batch of poems.

CHERRY PIE
I adore my mother’s cherry pie
It’s so good I wish to die
When my mother
makes it great
guess who happens to be late.
Is she making cherry pie?
Oh my gosh it’s just a lie!!

Butterfly


Butterfly! Butterfly!

With your speckled wings,

fly to the church,

soar to the sea,

and land on a tree.

by Sarah M


Nibbling on Leaves
One day a Japanese caterpillar
was nibbling
on a soft, juicy,
luscious leaf.
He ate it all the
way through.
 BOOM!
He landed
on dinner!

HAWK
Swooping over
head

Predator of
the wild

Protector of
a nest

Bird of
Prey

Hawk
by Jacob D.

(HAWK, particularly the line breaks, was inspired by the work of William Carlos Williams. Can you recognize it? We read River of Words; The story of William Carlos Williams as part of our poetry study. It's a fantastic picture book about the life of William Carlos Williams).

At My Grandmother’s House
I sit
on the couch where I always
relax
Just sitting
watching TV while
eating with my family.
All I can smell
is my noodles
I hear
the TV going on
and on
and on.
I feel happy!
So is
my brother
and grandmother.
I feel like
I’m in my
own world.
I sprint
into the kitchen because
I hear
the parade
We’re just
looking
out the window.
I had a great time
at
my grandmother’s house.

by Jordyn D.
