"The Fence By Paula, grade 4 I longed to be free, To dance, pray and have a decent sleep, I longed for the Lord to set his people free, But for now, I'm just sitting here waiting to be free."

"The Instrument By Mia, grade 4 The instrument sings. In the distance, church bells ring. The hand moves gracefully across the keys. The notes are played from a book that reads. The song so pretty it makes you sad. Yet the harmony soothes and the…"

On Halloween Night
by Carson, fourth grade poet

Halloween is such a fright.
It will be here when it’s night.
I zoomed to my room. BOOM! slammed the door.
I couldn’t wait one second more.
I slip on my dress, all torn and black,
Upon my head my pointy hat.
And in a flash I was ready to dash…
Out the door for candy galore.
I see ghosts, goblins and witches like me.
I was as happy as could be.
Haunted houses to mansions, doorbells we ring, Collecting our candy. “Trick-or-treat,” we sing.
The bright shining moon was full and my bucket too.
It’s time to go home…Boo hoo hoo.
When we got home, I lay down my broom
And counted my candy up in my room.
Halloween was fun. I had a good time.
Too bad it’s over and so is my rhyme.
