  1. 1. 2010-2011 Poems <br />from the fertile minds of NFS Third, Fourth, and Fifth Graders<br />Invitation<br />By Shel Silverstein<br />If you are a dreamer, come in<br />If you are a dreamer, a wisher, a liar<br />A hope-er, a pray-er, a magic bean buyer…<br />If you’re a pretender, come sit by my fire<br />For we have some flax-golden tales to spin.<br />Come in!<br />Come in!<br />
  2. 2. Candlelightby MeghaCandlelightI sit down, and rest my eyes on its settled red, yellow, and blue flamesI admire that untouchable, rough, but not harmful, little flame I gaze at the blaze that is never transparentPeople see a hot bundle of blazing fury…but I see something elseI see a magnificent collection of colors that make perfect harmonyI see a source of fuel that is incredibleIt makes my insides fire up but, yet, I calm downThe blaze courses through my veins, and pumps sizzling energy into my heart while that magical flame dances with such rage on the waxed candleIt wakes me up, and I am alert. I’ve never felt so alive!Keep that candlelight flaming…Keep on flaming<br />Memories<br />As I take the trains out<br />I pause at one, Thomas,<br />the one that will be in my memory forever.<br />When I had a track<br />I would play with all the trains,<br />but mostly Thomas,<br />the train that is now fading<br />in the attic<br />collecting dust<br />but still in my memories<br />Ben<br />
  3. 3. BASKETBALL <br />BY COLE<br />Basketball<br />Dribbling the ball up the court<br />The wind in my face<br />The basket standing tall with power<br />I jump up as if to say, “No!”<br />Letting the ball go like a baseball coming out of my hand<br />Spinning through the air like a vortex<br />Hitting the rim of steel<br />Rolling into the net like a fly in a web<br />It goes in and falls to the ground<br />Everybody cheers<br />We leave<br />Forgotten<br />Left under the stars<br />Until next time<br />Basketball<br />Where Poetry Hides<br />By Elena<br />Poetry hides deep down in my softball bag <br />Right next to the dirt at the bottom <br />Where all the memories of winning and losing stand<br />After every game I pack you up the same way<br />Every time <br />When I either strike out or hit a home-run <br />you stay there <br />Watching<br /> You congratulate me in awe <br />Or let me cry inside while packing you up<br />When you were new I was so excited <br />for everyone to get matching bags<br />I feel like we belong<br /> all of us<br /> as a team<br /> You watch silently <br />Your big compartments hold all of my stuff<br />You’re like a watch dog <br />protective<br />Anguilla<br />By Maleek<br />Trees dancing in the wind<br />Fine weather<br />in the Caribbean<br />Hot<br />Relaxing<br />White, sandy beaches<br />Coconut trees almost everywhere you go<br />Destructive hurricanes…<br />Light blue, translucent ocean<br />Enjoy my country!!!!!!!<br />
  4. 4. The Seasons<br />By Jessica<br />When summer comes, flowers bloom<br />Red, yellow, and purple, too<br />Butterflies roam in the crisp, blue sky<br />As they fly higher…I wave goodbye<br />Here comes Autumn<br />Leaves start to fall<br />Bare autumn trees <br />Stand lonely and tall<br />Winter comes next<br />With its cold, white snow <br />Which drifts with the whistling wind <br />As it blows<br />Last, but not least <br />Comes the beautiful spring<br />Pollen is everywhere<br />It makes my eyes sting <br />Snow<br />By Alice<br />Tiny little snowflakes,<br />Drifting from the sky<br />Each little snowflake different<br />Just like the children in the world.<br />

  26. 26. My Dress up Box<br />I walk down the stairs<br />To my old dress up box.<br /> It looks lonely,<br /> thrown down,<br /> and forgotten about.<br /> I walk over to the box <br />and open it.<br />There was every type of clothes<br /> you could think of. <br />There were cowgirl clothes,<br />dance recital dresses,<br />and everything in between. <br />It was full of memories <br />from when I was little. <br />I picked up one of the blue sparkly dresses<br /> that I wore in my first dace recital. <br />I wish I could sit there all day <br />and look at the outfits.<br />and bring back all of the memories .<br />Once I leave,<br /> I see the old box <br />that looks like<br /> it was thrown down<br /> and forgotten about. <br />Alyssa<br />A Flavor Explosion!<br />I start the scavenger hunt<br />for the bag <br />that holds wonderful, different tastes.<br />Finally! <br />I find what I’ve been looking for<br />and ask if anybody wants some.<br />Then I eat one.<br />and the flavor exploded right from the center <br />like an atomic bomb!<br />As my tongue goes numb, <br />I realize it has such a sweet, wonderful taste!<br />How I love Swedish Fish!<br />Omeed<br />Little Britches<br />I look at them.<br />They look so small<br /> that I can’t imagine myself<br /> in those little britches.<br />But I did wear the cute little outfit<br />when I was young, <br />seven years ago .<br />It seems like such a long time <br />as I look at them now.<br />Seven years ago.<br />Emma Kathryn<br />
  27. 27. The Piano Recital <br />By Erin<br />The man says my name<br />I slowly walk up to the piano<br />My heart pounding in my chest <br />as I walk <br />It looks so far away<br /> I feel sick to my stomach<br />I bow and take a seat<br />People are staring<br /> I start to get nervous <br />I close my eyes and take a deep breath<br />I start to play the delicate instrument <br />The next thing I know it’s over <br />The audience claps as I stand up <br />I bow to say thank you<br />And leave<br /> leaving the instrument alone in the silent room<br />as the next player comes up to play the piano.<br />Heroes<br />Brave, powerful<br />Fighting, shooting, doing<br />Flies up, flies down<br />Hiding, swiftly, attacking<br />Tiptoeing, running<br />Villains<br />By Sophia<br />Butterflies<br />Butterflies, soaring through the sky,<br />Oh, pretty, pretty, pretty.<br />Their wings, colorful like a rainbow,<br />Oh, pretty, pretty, pretty.<br />I love butterflies.<br />I hope you like them, too.<br />Chiarina<br />Fireworks<br />Bright, attractive<br />Sounding, shooting, lighting<br />Colors, rushing skyward, dark, emptiness<br />Wrenching, darkening, scaring<br />Menacing, cold <br />Darkness<br />By Jake<br />
  28. 28. Trapped<br />You’re trappedbut don’t worry,<br />you’re in good hands.<br />I lift my finger tips and peek <br />at your glowing body.<br />I know I can’t keep you,<br />but I will enjoy you while you’re here.<br />I open my hands.<br />You crawl off my palm<br />and to my hand,<br />then my arm,<br />and soon my elbow.<br />It tickles,<br />but I dare not move.<br />I will keep you until the end,<br />the end until you fly away<br />and go with your real family.<br />The feeling is gone.<br />I look on my arm<br />and notice you’re gone.<br />I begin to search my legs,<br />wrists,<br />palms,<br />anywhere to find that magical feeling<br />when I have you trapped.<br />Ashley<br />Yellow<br />I open the wrapper<br /> as fast as I can.<br />The whole thing<br /> is covered in chocolate.<br />I don’t eat the chocolate covered candy<br /> but break the bar in half.<br />I see the golden brown and yellow color.<br />I bite one end and taste<br /> the golden yellow honey comb flavor.<br />I lick the insides to feel<br /> a crisp like a hard foam or a honey comb.<br />I break the rest of the yellow candy in half <br />and save the rest for later.<br />Devon<br />
  29. 29. My New Bat<br />I wrap my left hand <br />around the base <br />of the black leather grip<br />while using my right <br />to slide off its thick black case<br />to reveal my new bat.<br />I slowly grasp it<br />with both hands<br /> and walk over to an open area<br /> to take a swing<br /> and to see if I like <br />the way it feels.<br />It was a little heavy, <br />just how I like it.<br />Jeremy<br />Memory Box<br />I grab the painted box<br />off the dusty shelf<br />and open the lid.<br />What do I find?<br />Memories.<br />Memories of long ago,<br />now only remembered <br />in pictures and souvenirs. <br />The pictures inside<br />are just small moments <br />of my big events in life,<br /> just small moments <br />tucked inside <br />my Memory Box. <br />~Kate<br />Chocolate Chip Ice Cream<br />The ice cream is so good.<br />I pick up the spoon. <br />It’s like time slows down.<br />I slowly lift<br />the soft liquid,<br />to my lips and it tastes<br />like heaven, <br />like time slows down.<br />Patrick<br />
