The Race                          by Logan (female 7th grader)

Tuesday morning

At the starting line

The countdown begins

Ticking in my mind

Eager to sprint

Tick Tick Tick Tick Tick Tick

Blood Pumping

Ready to go

Waiting for the signal

The echo of a gun

And we're off

Pow, Pow, Pow, Pow, Pow, Pow!

These kids did a great job!



Thundering Night


7th grade poet


I am jolted awake from my sound sleep

By the booming thunder outside my bedroom window

I bolt upright in my bed like a watch dog hearing the approach of an intruder

Wide awake now,

I wait for the next episode

Boom! Boom! Boom!


The roaring thunder seems never ending

One crash after another

I’m getting further deprived of my sleep

My eyes begin to close, as I drift off into my dreams

And then another Boom!

Growl by Tori V. 6th grade

6:15 on a Monday morning
And the groan
From my brother under the sheets
And I’m sitting on my bed
And the dog growls
Growl, growl, growl

Waiting for food to be served
I’m wondering if she had been eating
And I’m cleaning up the dishes from yesterday
And the dog growls
Growl, growl, growl

8:15 on a Friday Night by Rylie S. 6th Grade

8:15 on a Friday night
I am waiting and waiting
Thinking that she could walk
Through the door any minute
So excited you could hear
My heart beat from three miles away
Thump, thump, thump

So quiet you could hear the
Clock click tick tick tick tick
So quiet you can hear the
Crickets chirp chirp chirp

Shhh…she’s here
I am so anxious to get up and scream

6:00 Monday Morning by Danielle B. 6th gr.

6:00 on a Monday morning
And my alarm clock
Is about to beep
And I’m laying down so bored
And the alarm beeps
Beep, beep, beep, beep…

Waiting for my favorite song to play
And I think about the words that they say
And then I hear that song
And the alarm beeps
Beep, beep, beep, beep…

4:00 A.M. Sunday Morning by Tessa C.

It’s 4:00 A.M. Sunday morning
And the sun
Rises on the horizon
And I’m lying in my bed
And the birds sing
Chirp, chirp, chirp, chirp, chirp, chirp…

Waiting for the people to rise
And I’m wondering where the night has gone
And I’m longing for my friends to rise so we can
Go out and play
And the birds sing
Chirp, chirp, chirp, chirp, chirp, chirp…

5:30 Thursday Morning by Abigail W. 6th gr.

There is my one month sister
So sick her heart is thumping
Thump, thump, thump
I know she is going to die
But I love her and sit beside her
She is gone
Thump, thump, thump
all gone
