  • 1. Poetry AnthologyBy Nicholas Getchell
  • 2. The river runsThrough the dark green forestWith animals the size of trees Life is harsh Where dog eat dog In the land of the Amazon
  • 3. The man walked through the darkenedstreetLooking only at his feetThe rain comes from the black cloudsFilling the streets with Shadow’s shroudThe dawn began to breakThe hands of the man ceased to shakeAnd the day’s brilliant lightReplacing the dark and dreary night
  • 4. The duck flew south for the sum-merWhile cows ate the fully grownwheatThe house burns in a blue flame The pencil splinters The coffee tilts Vines grows around the car Birds fly in the red skyBats sleep in the dark cave
  • 5. This poem is suckyOh very muchI don’t know what else to doGuess the poem is done
  • 6. There once was a man from Peru He only liked people named Stu Jim and Georges would not doHe liked to jump and yell “BOO!” He would only wear one shoe
  • 7. Ode to NatureAs I walk through the fields and plainThe trees leaning on each other like canes The sound of the forest is much Birds and animals and all the such Create the sounds I love to hear The sound of it fills me with cheer Songs of birds fill the chilly air They sing with hardly a care The trees are standing tallWhile their leave turn yellow with fall
