Poetry

Some of my favorite poets are Robert Frost, Dr. Seuss, and Edgar Allan Poe. Below you will find a collection of poems that I have written.

Where I’m From

(inspired by George Ella Lyon)

*          *          *

I’m from jaggerbushes,

from “cricks” and pop.

I am from Pittsburghese.

*

I am from camping trips,

sitting around the fire and cooking s’mores.

Swimming all day and playing cards all night.

*

I’m from family time,

from childish comedy and “the tickle test.”

I am from a loving family.

*

I’m from musicals,

playing the flute and tap dancing.

I am from the arts.

*

I’m from beach trips,

swimming in the ocean and tanning

with my immediate and extended family.

*

I’m from Steelers Country,

P. I. T. T. Let’s go PITT!

three strikes, you’re out!

*

I’m from Pennsylvania.

The Closed Door

(inspired by William Carlos Williams)

*          *          *

So much depends upon

a black closed door

keeping the fluffy orange cat

inside the house.

Phil

The groundhog has said

winter will last six more weeks.

I hate the groundhog.

My Poem

My poem is awesome,

Your poem is not.

My poem has rhyme

Your poem has plot.

*

Everybody knows

rhyming is better

when you get to rhyme

two phrases together!

*

Okay, that rhyme

was kind of iffy.

Don’t worry though

This poem will get better in a jiffy!

*

By now this poem is getting

a bit excessive,

but admit it,

you think it’s impressive!

*

Now I think it’s time for me to go.

I’ve got other things to do, you see.

One more thing before I leave,

here’s a goodbye to you from me!

*          *          *

  2. The mouse poem was so cute! I am also obsessed with PITT as well so I really liked how you added that into your about me poem! I loved the poem you read in class as well because it was funny and not serious 🙂
