My Past Memories

Sneja Limbu, Redding Elementary 

When I see the sun

I feel like I am in the past

with all my wonderful memories

The memories

of being in the sunlight,

and playing soccer

Saying hooray when I win

and having good sportsmanship

when my team feels like they have lost 

The memory

of losing a soccer game

but still having fun

with joy and lots of smiles

The memory

of splashing puddles

while playing soccer

Christmas Morning

Jack Lawrence, Redding Elementary

I wake up feeling so excited

I can't wait to see the tree all lighted

With my presents all around

They woke up to come into the living room

As I ripped open my presents in a boom

I was so happy with what I got

I hugged my parents and said, "Thanks a lot"

Then I went through my whole stocking

I had to say, those were rocking

Spent the whole afternoon with all my new stuff

Down The Road

Poetry is my life
Love Joy and Harmony
Words scatter like the meadows are starting to howl
My fragile brain
steps into the world
and my words
The world swirls down the road
as I walk down the line
Thoughts on my head
copies on the page
like a money machine pinching my cheeks
Dandelions blow off my mind
as I walk down the road to my favorite place

“My Dad Is”

When I see my dad I see me

When I hug him, it feels like a warm blanket on a cold winter night

When we eat, we are like hungry lions on the prowl

When he and I play catch and he says "Go Looong"

I feel like a dog playing fetch with a stick and having fun
