Green - Aidan

The leaves on trees, and the stems of plants.
Blades of grass, slowly growing, and swaying.
The Green Goblin, throwing his dangerous bombs at Spider-Man.
The rustling of leaves in a hard wind.
The slurp of a green slushie.
The wind blowing through small blades of grass.
The taste of a kiwi and lime flavoured slushie, bursting with flavour, invading your mouth.
The bittersweet tastes of a Green Apple.
Green Grapes, ready to be made into wine.
The wet feeling of green moss,
A sharp feelign Pine-Needle, stuck in your arm.
Grass, rubbing on your feet, wet with morning dew.
Green can show you the beauty of nature.

Katherine's Earth Day Poem

Help! Help!
The Earth needs our help!
Calling all people everywhere,
We are the superheroes of our world;
We need to do our part
And give back to our Earth.
People of the Earth,
Get up and help, help to make the Earth green!

If we just sit around and wait,
What good would that do?
Get up and help, help renew the Earth!

We can do a lot if we set our minds to it!
The Earth could be reborn,
Beautiful and peaceful like ripples in a pool.

Let’s all get up and do what we can!
Let’s all get up and help the Earth!

Hewitt- color

A new cut
A fresh apple
A crackling fire sounds red
A scream would sound red
The whack of a mallet on steel would sound red
A bunch of grapes taste red
An apple tastes red
Iron tastes red
A sneaky crustation feels red
A mosquito bite feels red
A hot element feels red
Red can give, and take life

Kyle's Awesome Earth Day Poem

Earth Day

Earth Day is when the plants come and rise.
Earth Day helps those plants come to size.
Earth Day makes the coming of spring.
Earth Day helps the flower companies go,"Cha-Ching."

Earth Day makes this whole World rise.
Earth Day makes the World Decide.
"We will help the World today."
Everyone yells, "Hip-hip, Hooray!"

Green By: Mackenzie

Green is the stems and leaves of the flowers,
the trees in a meadow,
and the flat moss under a tree.
The sound rustling of the wind in the leaves,
or the crunching of apples
or whooshing of grass.
The tast of the kiwi in my mom's fruit salad,
a crunchy celery on the side of my plate,
a green-grape bunch hanging on a vine.
The soft feeling grass beneath your feet on a hot summer's day,
the feel of a crawling caterpiller inching up your arm,
or a pine needle stuck in your shoe.

Green can take you to the nature around you.

Kyle's Colour my World Poems

Revolutionize the World

Blue roses on a nice summer day
The sky, vivid and blasting with colour
A bluejay soaring high in the sky through the wind.
Blueberries bursting with flavour when you take a bite
The glowing colour of peoples eyes
Water flowing through the fresh rivers with fish flopping in the rivers
A blueberry slushie packed with lots of flavor
A blueberry that when you bite down on it, it BOOMS with taste in your mouth
Water that has been purified and in my house for drinking
Soft as a pillow
Smooth and gracious
A dragons slimy scales
Blue can revolutionize the World

Olivia's Colour My World Poem

A Walrus
Storm Clouds
Thunder pounding
Rain pattering
Owls hooting
A cooked fish
A hot cup of tea
Gray can make you sad

Colour My World Poem- Lindsay

Clean sheets
fluffy clouds
Waves crashing against rocks
the soft sound of rain falling
birds chirping outside
sweet fruits
little candies
vanilla ice cream
a light wind
soft bedsheets
White can make you happy any day

Katherine's Color My World Poem

fluffy clouds
blank paper
new walls
gently falling snow
the hum of a radiator
a steaming kettle
light cotton candy
vanilla ice cream
cold, refreshing milk
soft cotton
a mellow polar bear's coat
a fuzzy blanket
White can sweep you away.

Kove`s Colour Poem

a fresh sheet of paper,
a shell that has just been washed up by the beach,
your ancient ivory necklace,
waves crashing against rocks,
birds singing at dawn,
a white tiger calling for the rest of his pack,
the mild taste of a dragonfruit,
the soft fluffy-ness of a marshmallow,
a lychee smoothie,
fresh sheets that just came out of the laundry,
a brand new clean house,
a soft blanket that you love to cuddle in,
White can take you on a ride beyond your wildest dreams.

a bruise on your leg,
bunches of grapes in a bowl,
a sweater that goes great with black,
the sound of power,
fruit juice poured into a glass
a school bell ringing, ringing
Grandma's rhubarb pie.
cold medicine served up on a tablespoon
squishy cough drops,
velvet covered cushions
pointy tip pentel markers,
the sky before lightning starts
Purple can take you for a sweet ride.

CUCUMBERS (not as good as potatoes)

 Earth Day Poem 2013/5/10
The earth is like a sandwich. And the pickles are people. We could make the sandwich taste good and delicious, but we weren’t shaken of our brine before entering the sandwich. Since we weren’t shaken we have made the other toppings and condiments tasteless, and have made the bread soggy. But we could change our sandwich, and make it better, all we have to do is be cucumbers, which are nice and clean and dry, and are healthier when eaten.                       HEWITT

Interpretation: We are wrecking our earth, but if we change into better people we can make a difference and save our sickened earth.

Lindsay's Poem: Kittens

Small smiles,
Fluffy feet,
Quiet meows through the house,
Paws mittens padding all around,
MEW, MEW what to do,
walking all around,
Kittens are your best friend who never leave you,
Always happy like rays of sun,
Kittens are like fluffy friends,
Kittens are purrrrrrr-fect.

Earth Day

Read the two poems below & create your own poem about Earth Day

by David Wagoner        

Stand still. The trees ahead and bushes beside you
are not lost. Wherever you are is called Here,
And you must treat it as a powerful stranger,
Must ask permission to know it and be known.
The forest breathes. Listen. It answers,
I have made this place around you.
If you leave it you may come back again, saying Here.
No two trees are the same to Raven.
No two branches are the same to Wren.
If what a tree or a bush does is lost on you,
You are surely lost. Stand still. The forest

Knows where you are. You must let it find you. 

The peace of wild things
By Wendell Barry 

When despair for the world grows in me
and I wake in the night at the least sound
in fear of what my life and my children's lives may be,
I go and lie down where the wood drake
rests in his beauty on the water, and the great heron feeds.
I come into the peace of wild things
who do not tax their lives with forethought
of grief. I come into the presence of still water.
And I feel above me the day-blind stars
waiting with their light. For a time
I rest in the grace of the world, and am free.

The Cow and The Cans By: Mackenzie

A fat, fluffy cow could count the cans that smelt like burnt cheese with mice inside, in the farmhouse.
When the cow kicked one of the cans, the mouse inside screamed loudly.
That outburst startled the cow and he went "MOOOOO!"
"Pardon," The mouse came out and told the cow, " I didn’t mean to startle you my friend, but you kicked my can and almost dented it, so I had to yell. I am usually peaceful and quiet like falling snow,
But a mouse with out a cheese-smelling can is like a dog without a bone."
"I’m sorry for kicking your can," said the cow, "But without cans to count and kick, I’ll just go back to my pasture home."

perilous penguins

AIDAN                                                      'PENGUINS'                            BY:  AIDAN

Perilous Penguins. They fight, they bite, and they hurt like a wasp stings. Perilous Penguins, they drop into the cold, icy waters of the south. Perilous Penguins, they are "War Mongers". Perilous Penguins, they scream out 'Squak'! "What?" is our answer. Perilous Penguins, they are like 'time bombs ready to explode'. Perilous Penguins, they fight, they bite, but don't know how to write. Perilous Penguins, they are my best friends.


Kyle's Poem w/ All Devices

Poem with all of the Devices in it
Terrible times and
the monumental moments.
Your life can sometimes give you
drops of tears
or times of happiness.
When I’m happy,
I am a fresh newborn mind.
"You need to eat tweet."
I said to my bird.
This bird is like a brother to me.
Tweet loves to eat meat.
Tweet is like a blast of fresh air.

                                          Wet Wallaby, by Luc

The wet wallaby would feel really damp, yet soft, is a little bundel of joy, and likes to chitter chat to his friends, and is very nice. The outback is home to a wallaby snack like a leaf, growing well and happy to be picked and eaten by a wallaby, who is like a fussy baby when it comes to food.
