Ice Cream

Ice cream is so soft

Ice cream is creamy

It comes in any cones

It comes in different flavors

It melts fast so eat it fast





There are lots of games

Games are fun to play

Your family plays with you

Have a friend play with you

Have a family game night


The following poem is a Bio Poem.







Fruit Band

Once there was mango who played a banjo

So its fruit friends played different instruments

The apple played the piano

while the banana played the violin

The pear played the guitar, do did the Asian pear

while Grapefruit played the brass

The grape played the clarinet

while the strawberry played the trumpet

The blueberry played the tuba

And the blueberry played the french horn.

Kitchen Poetry

I cooked twenty baseballs in a pot today
I cooked fifteen light bulbs in a cooker yesterday
I smashed a clock with a masher on Monday
I steamed some glasses on Friday
I fried a bed on Thursday
I grilled a iPod on Wednesday
I cut a phone in half with a butcher’s knife on Tuesday
I baked a book on a skillet on  Sunday
I put some glue in a pot of boiling water
I had a blast in my kitchen everyday.


April is the National Poetry Month, so please try to write a poem this month for somebody that you love, and that will make them happy. This poem is for my family.


Recycling is the path to gold

it helps the environment

we get more oxygen

recycle milk cans, boxes, plastic, paper and glass

recycle everything that has the recycling sign on

reuse everything that you can..

but don’t rip pages from books just to recycle

don’t recycle things that are special to your family, but save them

recycling is the way to go on the Broadway show

Just That Gum – Poem

Everybody is chewing gum

everywhere in the house up and down

outside, in the bathroom, in the bedroom while they are sleeping

they are chewing it in front of the TV and the computer

while they are working and playing too.

They are blowing bubbles and popping them and getting messy

they are grabbing more and more gum

while they are cooking, shoveling the snow and planting plants

they are chewing and blowing and chewing and blowing

they are chewing it while they are cleaning, and traveling and taking pictures

painting pictures, walking their dogs and cats, exercising, reding books

mixing, pouring and fixing

hanging, baking and decorating

shopping for groceries, doing chores around the house

they are chewing while driving, mopping, mowing and doing laundry

knitting, folding clothes and blankets,writing, working, dancing and singing

taking a shower, dusting, running

jumping all around the house
