YES! I finished the poetry challenge! I’m so proud of myself for doing this! I did end up missing a few days, but overall, I think I did pretty good. This was a nw and different experience for me, but it was a lot of fun. There were times (as you could probably tell) when I was frustrated with the challenge and couldn’t think of anything to write, but I overcame those road blocks and kept on going.
I would definitely do this challenge again and again, and I would also recommend this challenge to other people who enjoy writing poetry. You don’t even have to create poetry for a blog. You could just write down whatever you feel in a notebook and keep it for yourself!
But just because the poetry challlenge is over, doesn’t mean that I won’t write poetry anymore! It is one of my favorite styles of writing and I will continue to write a post my pieces for everyone to see.
This is very hard
I can’t think of ideas
Please comment your thoughts.
Sometimes I wish that
I was a small, happy bird
So joyful, so free.
As soon as May starts
Ms. Haseltine’s class will take part
In a blog takeover
To create blogging works of art.
Amy Ludwig VanDerwater was ever so kind
And lend us her blog
So we could keep it alive.
Sharing Our Notebooks
Is the blog we will take
I hope you will come and take a look
Whenever you have a break.
A beautiful, fair queen sings
Enjoying the ice.
There once was a kid named Jim
Who really liked to swim
He would swim twelve laps an hour
And then he’d take a shower
Which is why he is so slim.
In english, we have been working on two voice poems with partners. My friend Pen Lover, from the blog A Journey as a Writer, and I wrote a great poem that I wanted to share with you, but before that, Pen Lover’s writings are really interesting. If you would like to see more of her amazing pieces, click here.
In this poem, we have some lines that are seperate and some that we say together. To help you identify them, I decided to make my lines bold, Pen Lover’s italic, and keep them plain when we speak together. Here it is!
I don’t like pineapple
But they’re so sweet!
No, they kind of taste like feet
I don’t like snakes, they look so cruel,
Well, I happen to think that they are pretty cool
I love the sound of rain, with its gentle pitter patter
That relentless noise makes me mad as a hatter!
Why, oh why can’t we agree on anything?
I really hope this friendship doesn’t come to an ending!
Well, there is one thing that we can agree on…
The best color is…
Most people thing that snakes are cruel
But I happen to think that they’re pretty cool
Snakes can be playful and fun
And they never weigh more than a ton
They slither around
With sun glinting of their scales
And did you know rattlesnake rattles
are the same material as our fingernails?
In conclusion, snakes are really great
And they can live to be older than eight!
Poetry is a
Great thing to make except at
10 pm at night.
Oh no! I forgot to write a post yesterday!
I feel so ashamed!
Now I’ll have to write two posts today!
Oh, how can I think of so many ideas that are new?
I can hardly think of one, much less two!
And- Oh wait, I just thought of something. Toodleoo!
