Acrostic Poem
R umble of thunder
A che in my head
I n the spring, summer, and fall
N oise on my windowpanes

Cinquain
Fall
Crisp, cool
Blowing, drifting, dying
Urging us toward winter
Autumn

Alphabet Alliteration
Amazing apes ate apples in the afternoon
Bony baboons bake bread by believing
Cautious cats creep
Dusty dogs dig in the dirt
Eager elephants eat eggs in the entryway
Ferocious felines feel fragrant and fiery
Giant grasshoppers grow greedily
Happy hippos hop through the hyacinths
Icy igloos itch with icicles
Jumping jacks jerk jello and jam
Kenyan kangaroos kick Kate
Lazy lemurs loll near the lagoon
Mangy mutts moan through their muzzles
Nice Nancy needs normal nights
Outstanding otters ogle ostriches
Purple ponies paint themselves pink
Quiet queens question
Rambunctious raccoons rumble
Silly songs synthesize and strategize
Tired turtles tumble from the trees
Ugly Ursula urges
Vivacious violins verve with vigor
White wagons wait
X-ed out X-rays explain extras
Yellow yaks yawn
Zippy zebras zoom through the zoo

Haiku
Wishing to relax
Trying hard to finish my work
Thinking, writing fast
Five Senses Poem
Sleep is black, deep and dark.
It tastes like cotton balls
And sounds like silence.
It smells like clean linens
And looks like relaxation.
Sleep is what I want after a long day.

Color Poem
Yellow is like the sound of children laughing.
Yellow is like the smell of dandelions and fresh-cut grass.
Yellow is like the taste of a lemondrop, bursting on my tongue.
Yellow is like the feel of sunshine on my shoulders.

Limerick
There once was a girl who was four
Who always begged her parents for more
Until she broke all her toys
And scared off all the boys
And then she seemed quite the bore.
