are the most beautiful eyes
to look into.
What do you see
when you look
in those shimmering eyes
filled with fright?
You will see eyes
filled with fright and pain
for her little one's death.
What do you hear
in her sweet howl?
You will hear her howling
in pain because
her little one is gone forever.
If you look...
in her eyes filled
with fright and pain
you will see a wolf
who needs our desperate help.
If you listen...
to her howl
you will hear
her desperate cry for help
that will never come
her way again.
This poem is about the fear and coldness that is in a
wolf I chose this poem because I enjoy wolves. I like
how mysterious they can be. The poem is a free
verse. The poem also has a sad and a little
depressing mood to it.
I Wonder Where My
I wonder where my lions are?
I wonder where my lions are?
I wonder where my lions are?
They are safe running in heaven in that beautiful park that God own in Heaven
together with the other animals
Also in heaven they are protected by God
Because God doesn't allow any hunters in heaven
Like here on the earth
But there is no animal cruelty in heaven
But the place that have animal cruelty is on the earth
The people that lives in heaven are more educated than on the earth
The people in heaven respect the animals in heaven
The people on earth don't respect the animals on the earth
The people in heaven have a lot of love for the animals
The people on the earth don't seem to have any love for the animals
Even when I sleep I dream of heaven and I see the lions and other Animals
Living free in the park
And I must say that the park in heaven that God made is beautiful
But at the same time I thank God for giving the animals a beautiful Home
This poem is about the comparison between earth
and heaven for animals. I picked this poem because
I am highly against animal cruelty and poachers.
This is a free verse poem. The poem is also kind of
like a big metaphor because of the heaven and
A Fox’s Delight
dancing by night and hunting by day,
we have heard the call,
the moon is our light,
the sun is our soul,
as all we have is each other,
we find our love,
and it is our delight,
as day falls to become the beautiful night,
we sing and dance to the sound of the drum,
as fire shines and water glistens,
we love this time for it is our joy,
as many of us are filled with delight.
This poem is about the day in the life of a fox. I
picked this poem because foxes are the best. I
mean everyone loves foxes. This poem has
personification. It talks about how the sun is our
soul. Also, there’s a little imagery in there.
The Elephant’s World
Even though an elephant has a better
Memory than me-
I think one can see-
There's more stress in
The lives of the discontent-
Worry - Worry - Worry
For elephants only lie
On their Tum - tum
They eat peanuts
& Think 'Yum - Yum'
They want nothing-
They only want to keep
They understand that
They must lead The Tribe
& Hunt - Gather
They wouldn't rather
Have it any other way-
I think it's safe to say
Live in a
That we may never
Benjamin Michael Clark
This poem is about elephants and how the whole
peanut thing is a lie. Elephants actually have to hunt
and stick together in the wild. I chose this poem
because I’ve always liked elephants since I was
little. This poem has sort of a rhyme scheme and an
end rhyme thing going on.
When Dolphins Dance
When dolphins dance mid sea and air,
God smiles from Heaven's Throne!
They've found a life beyond compare,
With freedom all their own!
No wonder that the dolphins dance,
With smiles and twinkling eyes!
No wonder that such sights entrance
The hearts within the wise...
It's like there's magic sprinkled there,
As if some spell were cast...
Or like the answer to a prayer
That's somehow here at last...
For dolphins dive, then take a chance,
From dark depths fast to rise!
As if their deepest joys enhance
Each time they pierce the skies!
Behold the precious joys of life,
Each time we seize the day,
To meet each moment without strife,
Before it slips away!
Take heart, and think like dolphins do!
Keep young at heart, my friend!
That way, God's smiles will shine on you,
On that you can depend!
This poem is about how majestic dolphins are. I
picked this poem because dolphins are pretty cool
in general. And did you know that dolphins travel in
packs, Mrs. Love? Well they do! There is some
rhyming in this poem too!
A Mouse’s Tale
I was forced from my accommodation
and went to live in a field of grass.
I dug a tiny hole in the soil
and in it I began to relax.
Later, I dug the hole much deeper,
so as to escape the winter cold.
The snow and rain passed over
and spring began to unfold.
The green grass turned to barley
and I really enjoyed living here.
My home was ploughed up yesterday,
that’s twice in less than a year.
This poem is about a mouse trying to stay away
from the snow. I chose this poem because I respect
the mouse. I respect the advantages it has with its
size. A mouse can travel to unseen places through
cracks and tiny holes. This is a free verse poem
The Boy Inside The
Turtle Yesterday was an extra-long day
for the boy with no arms
or legs. Neighborhood children
played outside his window.
A soft machine, they circled,
joined hands, closed eyes,
jumped up and down: shoelaces,
giggles moving in time.
One caught the boy peering.
The boy contorted out of sight,
his breaths lumped on one another
like cows in a mat house.
He twisted too slow. Look,
it's the turtle! The children
gassed like an audience
responding to a laugh sign.
He shifted his weight left to right
back left, again right,
then felt from his chair- a pilot
balling out of a crashing plane.
He was familiar with this
Falling. So was his mother.
She'd surrounded his chair
with six layers of towels.
He waited there like a spilled bucket
of green paint. When he no longer heard
any semblance of playing,
he called his mom for help.
This poem is about a boy with no arms or legs. It’s
comparing the boy to a turtle and its shell. I chose
this poem because it made a somewhat morbid but
also really good connection between a turtle and a
boy. This is a free verse poem. But to me there’s
also imagery. How the poet wrote this kind of made
me feel like I was watching the boy rock back and
In the jungle, a lion's roar,
Loud rumbling from it's core.
Magnificent mane of golden brown,
He is a king but wears no crown.
Predator and enemy they have two,
Human hunters, Hyenas too.
The lion and his lioness pride,
If you cross them, run, don't hide.
The roar of a Lion,
The rolling sound of thunder,
The chase of a Lion,
His prey runs asunder.
The Lion's roar is his symbol,
Of Strength, Of Leadership, Of pride,
The raw Roar sound is tribal,
His pride, so true, abide.
This poem is about the superiority and leadership a
lion has. I picked this poem because lions are the
kings and queens of the jungle. Lions run
everything. That’s why I like them. In this poem
there are end rhymes up till the end.
Robin’s Egg Blue
Five baby robins watch Daddy Robin soar; (hold up 5
One baby leaves the nest, and now there are four. (thumb)
Four baby robins, high up in a tree;
One flies to catch a worm, and now there are three. (index)
Three baby robins had nothing to do;
One tried his new-found wing, and then there were
Two baby robins frolicked in the sun;
Another robin chased a bug, and then there was one. (ring)
One baby robin, left all alone;
And this baby robin decided to stay home!
This poem is about five robins in a nest. All but one
leaves the nest. I chose this poem because I have a
blue robin that flies around my yard every once in
awhile. This poem has end rhymes. Also this is
actually a ballad.
Supreme is red and white
It tastes like won ton soup
It sounds like a G
It smells like that plastic bag
It looks like that box logo
And it makes me feel like Yeezus
