Peer Created Poem

The Nicole
ABAB Rhyme
17 lines
3 stanzas
about any living thing

Grazing in the field
Head down, eating the grass
No reason to yield
Time continuing to pass
Trees, blocking the sun like a shield
Silent like a normal school class

Running through the leaves and wood
Escaping the sound of a car
Not knowing if the intruder's intentions are good
But trying to get very far
Going as fast as it could
Away from the road and tar

Covered in thin brown hair
With a tail as white as snow
Never a spot that is bare
And antlers for show
The deer is an animal for which we should care

1st draft
Breathing in and out
Feeling the ground underneath
Speeding by the others

2nd draft
Left foot after right
Speeding up, pain swelling up
Pushing till the end

Inhale, stride, exhale
Feet flying through the terrain
Going for the best


Homework is the Worst

Homework is such a chore
It really is a complete bore
Sitting at home doing lots of math
Instead of being with friends, having a laugh

Homework is such a buzzkill
The act has no thrill
Can't have any sort of fun
Until the deed is done

Homework is such a pain
Always so dismal and plain
You must have no brain in your dome
If you enjoying taking school to your home

You are difficult to maintain. I lose you when I speed up but regain you when I slow down. You muffle the sounds around me, including the pounding of my feet on the ground. I have less of you when I am sick. However, you are one of the most important aspects of my ordeal. The oxygen you give keeps me going.
