Ode to the No.2 Pencil

 

Wooden pencil, how you shine

Working your magic on my piece of paper

Drawing my artwork in neat, straight lines

Into a gorgeous skyscraper

 

Making tests so easy

Circling in the little bubbles

I have to admit, tests make me a little queasy

But with you, I have no troubles

 

Pink eraser on top

Makes my mistakes go away

Always working nonstop

Never in disarray

 

Only dependent on you

Thank you for existing

Best when you’re new

Hopefully you’ll always be there, assisting.

 

Acrostic

 

Flee far away!

It’s here

Now

And I haven’t studied!

Looks like I’ve got to hit the books

So I’ll get a good grade!

 

Rhyming Poem

Lunchtime

Chicken and fries

Oh, what a prize

This meal is as wise

As is tasty; it implies

A fun surprise!

 

Tanka

Schoolyard  After Summer Vacation

 

Kids running about

Excited to see their friends

Exchanging schedules

Happy and jittery too

Ready for whatever comes

 

Cinquain

 

Whiteboard

Brainstorming ideas

Pens making marks

Expressing intellect of today

Chalkboard
