Color Me Poetry
There was a blue whale.
He was as hungry as the sky was for the water.
Soon he saw a red chili.
It was like fireworks (boom, boom) that went up into the sky.
Soon the blue whale got the chili and became purple like grapes
and bumpy like a chameleon.
Cassandra, Age 10
My color green sounds like a slow turtle
But it tastes like a fresh apple from the garden
It smells like a beautiful spring grass
But it looks strangely like a bucket of paint barely made from the store.
It feels like a soft pillow
It moves like a slow snail.
Tianalyse, Age 11
Yellow Is Fun
Yellow makes me feel happy.
Yellow is like a juicy banana.
Yellow is like bright school bus.
Yellow is like Sunday fun day.
Yellow is like sunshine sky.
Yellow is the best.
Kevin, Age 11
The Rainbow of Colors
The rainbow of colors. El arco iris de colores
Red is how I feel when Me siento rojo cuando
my brothers pull my hair. mis hermanos me jalan el rabo.
Yellow is how I feel when Me siento amarillo cuando
I am happy. me siento feliz.
White is how I feel when Me siento blanco cuando
I see clouds. veo las nubes.
Green is how I feel when Me siento verde cuando
I see grass. veo el cesped.
Iyonna, Age 9
Green sounds like trees moving side to side.
Green tastes like a sweet, crunchy apple.
Green smells like green apple bubble gum that is sour and chewy.
Green looks like real small peas on my plate.
Green feels like Christmas wrapping paper, smooth as my blanket.
Green moves like a jumping grasshopper
Jose, Age 8
I like blue because it makes me feel happy.
I like white because it reminds me of fluffy white clouds.
I like light blue because it reminds me of the sky.
Jasmine, Age 11
Teal is happiness like conquering the world
Teal is love like a big, deep hug
Teal is peace like sitting on a beach watching the sun set
Teal is Argentina my favorite soccer team
Teal is quiet like an empty room
A calm teal wave like a heart beating slow
A quiet teal wave like walking in a park
The Sun, The Moon, & The Planets
Xavier, Age 9
Sun and Moon
helps flowers grow
warms your car
Brayan, Age 9
Planets of different colors in space
With a slow song.
Shiny stars all over me
Down and up,
And right to left…
I see a moon to the left,
And to the right,
A sun shining at me.
Edwin, Age 10
I wish I was a star
To be high in the sky
Shining down on you
As you say goodnight
Rebecca, age 10
A Falling Star
I saw a star that slides down the sky,
Blinding down south as I passed by
Too quick and too burning to hold,
Too lovely to become old or to be sold.
Good for only to make nice and beautiful wishes on…
And then forever to be gone.
Bao, Age 9
Sunset is beautiful.
The brightness and darkness come together
The color red and orange begin
The moon is getting brighter
So are the stars.
The sun is going West.
Down mountain and valley it went.
The sun is resting.
The moon comes out.
The sun is going to another hemisphere.
Peacefulness and night came and lullaby the people to sleep.
Karla, Age 9
Some Things About Leaves
The leaves change color,
The leaves are yellow and red,
The leaves are flying.
Jesse, Age 9; Gerardo, Age 10
Lightning and Thunder
I am scary
I am loud
I am hot
I like storms
I do too
When we get together we have a rainstorm!
Nashley, Age 9
Stop ruining the sunny days.
Every day when I want to go outside
the clouds start getting gray.
Take your rain to places where it doesn’t rain
like the desert.
In school you even ruin the days
when we want to go outside
Rain Rain Go Away!
Come again some other day.
I am so tired of you
so leave forever.
Eric, Age 9
I like to rake leaves
Orange, red, brown, yellow, fun
Then jump inside them
Away the leaves will fly
Happy to have Fall

Great and big!
Indigo, red, violet too!
Everything I wrote I love it too!
Nadia, Age 10
Butterflies make me feel happy.
They are colorful and pretty.
They flutter their wings to fly through the air.
They fly through the air like they just don’t care.
Butterflies land on flowers to get some food to survive in nature.
Alexa, Age 9
The ocean is as blue as the wonderful sky.
I feel the hot burning sand on my feet when I close my eyes.
I feel freezing when I swim.
I feel cozy when I lay on the hot burning sand.
I feel cold when I think of the ocean blue and deep.
Dayana, Age 10
The sky is blue
The stars shine bright
Dark clouds fluffy like my pillow
The moon is as big as earth
The sun is hot as fire
Earth green and blue
Blue like the sea and green like the trees
Tornado dark and gray
Wind blowing my face
Shooting star shiny as gold and fast as a car
Maciel, Age 8
My happiness is like sunshine.
It looks like the sun and it reminds me of the time when I was a little kid.
It makes me happy.
I want to go ride my bicycle.
Aracely, Age 11
My happiness is like a playground.
It jumps and it plays it makes me feel like my own time.
I want to play, jump and be myself.
Ariana, Age 9
Happy is in the jar.
He is glad and wants to jump with joy.
He is as beautiful and peaceful as a butterfly.
Spreading all over the earth
Bringing joy everywhere.
He fills the jar with love.
Kind words and joyfulness all around the world.
Everyone wants Happy around.
I think I’ll let him out of the jar.
Betsy, Age 10
Never Be Free
I feel stuck with the door shut
I feel dead instead
Never be free to climb a tree
Not cool I can’t rule
Not my way to stay all gray
Never stay my way
I feel like I’m going to faint and never be awake
Never run and jump, I feel like I’m going to fall.

A new year begins.
A snowman family
They are playing in the cold
Having so much fun.
New flowers growing
and beautiful butterflies
flying all around.
Big blue sparkly pool
My family swimming all day
SPLASH!! I jump right in.
Big leaves falling down
EEK! BOO! Happy Halloween!
A lot of colors.
And then it begins again.

Caroline, Age 11
I am snuggly, lucky little girl
Living in Wisconsin
I have been around for 10 years
When the wind begins to blow
And the snow falls from the sky
I know the time has come
To go to the closet and pull out
My fuzzy purple hat
Wearing this hat will always keep me
Warm inside, all snuggly
Miguel, Age 8
There’s a white blanket
Covering the mountain tops
It’s so cold and white.
A tree without leaves
Brown like a big chocolate bar
When will leaves come again?
Myself, My Friends, My Family
Araceli, Age 9
I am a beautiful polar bear because I love to express my feelings.
I am a baby blue Jordan shoe because they look sweet on my feet.
I am water because I go with the flow.
Me, I am huggable, happy, and helpful.
Daniela, Age 9
We go through smiles and laughter
We go through tears and fights
But I know that everything is going to be alright
I can be the hero to save the day
Cause you’ll stand by my side and you’re here to stay
Your smile is a cheer from you to me
The cost is nothing it is given for free.
Luis, Age 10
I am like a nice sunny day shining like a bright star.
The ocean sparkles with my light.
When the storm comes I feel sad and grey.
I am dark like the night sky when nothing goes my way.
When the light shines within me I brighten up others.
When I see my family they comfort me like the planets and the galaxies around me.
I am Luis
Alfredo, Age 10
I am an active monkey not a fast lion
I am a yellow sun flower not the red rose
I am the cold winter not the hot summer
I am a loud guitar not a silent cowbell
I am a cool Lamborghini not a mini van
I am a hot sunny day not a cold windy storm
I am the hot fire not the cold water
I am a bright red not dark blue
I am a happy play full person.
Isabella, Age 8
I remember the time I went to the Bahamas
I saw people getting their hair done
Then I asked my mom if I can get my hair done too
Then she said “sure”
I remember the lady started to braid my hair
So I sat and sat and sat
When the lady was finished I looked in the mirror
Then I said to myself “I look beautiful then ever”!
Graciela, Age 8
1 teaspoon of love
3 cups of kindness
5 cups of goodness
2 teaspoons of honesty
4 cups of respect
In a large bowl stir in love, kindness, goodness, honesty, and respect
Put in a 9 inch by 13 inch pan
Place inside a 275 degree oven for 5 minutes
Cool down and serve to her children
Johanyandeliz, Age 8
Playing with friends,
Until the day ends.
Swinging on the monkey bars,
Then we eat candy bars.
Sliding down the slide
Like a carnival ride.
Swinging on the swings
Jumping off like we have wings.
It’s time to leave the park
Because it’s getting dark.
We are on our way
Heading home for the day.
Sanaa, Age 9
I am from the friend zone
because I like to make lots of friends
I am from doing my best
by working hard in class
I am from the land of art
because I like drawing
I am from game land
where I play soccer and basketball
I am from being a fancy girl
because I like playing dress up
I am from the land of loving hearts
where I am sharing, helpful and kind
I am Sanaa
Bryson, Age 8
Soccer is my favorite sport.
You can be tall, you can be short.
Making a goal is the best test.
If you are like Messi, you are the best.
Running and kicking in the grass.
But still making time for class.
Scoring a goal with the ball.
Soccer is the best sport of all.
Dyllan, Age 9
My team is a bird
They can see the ball from far away
My team is a cheetah
They can run very fast
My team is a pack of wolves
They work together passing the ball
My team are clowns
They do silly things when they make a goal
Carla, Age 9
I like to play in May
I like to play in the park
I like to play in the day
I like to play in the dark
