Concrete Poem

Nebraska Ode Poem

The beautiful blue sky
The hot steaming yellow sun
White puffy clouds
Green trees
Flowers blooming everywhere
Chillen on your farm
Listenin to a country song
Playing in the mud
Just having some fun
Nebraska has my heart
Nebraska is life
Nebraska is my home.

Persona Poem

I lay here and wait and wait,
I love it when they grab a hold of my stand,
and pick me up.
They say the pledge while looking at me,
but the rest of the day I'm unnoticeable.

Nebraska Poem

Nebraska is sunshine
When there is happiness,
laughter, smiles;
Everything is calm
Flowers blooming,
Corn growing,
Horse riding;
People who are kindhearted.
Nebraska captures your heart
like no one else does
Nebraska is HOME..

Extended Metaphors

Friendship is like a roller coaster,
You have ups & downs;
But you always make up
in the end.
Friendship is a challenge,
When things are difficult
But you succeed,
Friendship is achievement.

Found Poem

From Elie Wiesel

Freedom is full of happiness,
When you can do anything be anything,
You want to be.
For what is grateful.
Have hopes,
Believe in your dreams.
Anything is possible;
Just believe.

5 Sense Poem

The beautiful blue sky;
days full of warmth,
and a fresh summer breeze.
The children playing with laughter,
Birds chirping;
with reminders of a campfire song.

Name Poem

It means music and confident
It is the number 13
It is like cloudy sky, beautiful, aqua
It is the memory of my mom
Who taught me believe and trust
When I help her do chores
My name is Leandra
It means life can be hard but it will get better

Acrostic Poem

In the movie Blindsight the kids had to believe that they could climb the mountain. You should always believe that you will always achieve your goals and dreams. This also relates to my life, because I had to believe that I could do things that I didn’t think I could accomplish. One of the things I believed I couldn’t do is making new friends on the first day of school. You just have to believe.

The ghost of OHS

 Have you ever seen a ghost before? Well the OHS has a ghost, This school has been haunted ever since last year. The ghosts name is Contessa.  She is 14 now; she died when she was 13 from a stroke which took place at the school in the music room. Contessa has bright red hair and brown eyes.  She wears a blue sweatshirt because blue is her favorite color.  Her feet are weird because she has two left feet.  With a tall and skinny body that smells like wonderful strawberries. When you pass the music room, you might hear a soft yet magical voice. 
This beautiful young lady loves to sing. Contessa loves country music, it helps her feel calm. Her favorite song is “Roller Coster” by Luke Bryan.   She has a wonderful personality, but if you make her angry she goes to mad/upset mode. This ghost may not seem scary, but at night she turns into a whole different person. If I were you, I would visit the school in the day rather then at night.
    One morning,  there was this small girl that was wondering in the ginormous halls after school. Her name is Anna, she was knew to the school, She happened to pass by the music room. As she heard the ghost of OHS singing. Anna tip-toed into the room, she didn’t see anyone in there, Contessa had stopped singing. While Anna was walking around the room Contessa was steadily following behind her with no unforeseen noise.  Because it was morning, Contessa left her alone.
     Then one night after a basketball game, Anna was walking by the music room and heard the singing again. Anna quickly opened the door trying to see if she could spot the ghost in there. This upset Contessa and she swooshed across the room knocking down Anna.   Anna ran and hid behind the drums, Contessa Chased her knocking over all of the instruments. Screaming hysterically Anna crawled trying to get out of the room before the ghost could hurt her.
     Anna made it to the door and ran to find a phone and call the police, but then she thought to herself would the police believe that there is a ghost trying to get her. They would think she was crazy. Mr. Fisher saw her and asked her if she needed a ride home, Anna said that she would love to have a ride. As they were leaving, Anna felt a tug on her shirt. She knew that it was the ghost, but she didn’t bother to say anything she just wanted to go home. Anna will return again.

Halloween at Hogwarts

Leandra Lawton
Period 4  

                                                                        Halloween at Hogwarts
As I, Harry Potter, walked in the great hall with Ron Weasley, my best friend, we were smelling delicious food.  We could smell pumpkin pie, chocolate fountain, pizza, etc. It was our first year of Hogwarts. Halloween was our favorite season. Hogwarts School is ginormous, and quite very magical. We both scurried to the food. I was starving, so I jostled food in my mouth.
When I finished with this first treat, I came across a bowl of soup. It looked devouring there were bugs in it. The soup looked mysterious. It smelled burnt. I asked Professor Dumbledore what it was.  He replied,  “that this soup was called “Troppia”.   “Yuck, thats sounds disgusting,” Dumbledore and I chuckled. Dumbledore replied, “children know it does taste better than it looks and sounds, You kids shall try it.” I thought to myself “ Well, he was right maybe we should try it.” I was forcing myself to try it. After, I tasted the soup, it tasted tremendous. Dumbledore was right! The soup does taste more scrumptious than it looks and sounds. Ron concurred. There were decorations everywhere. The decorations were tremendous; bats flying, flying pumpkins, ghosts scattering in the building.   The activities involved costumes, broom racing, food fights, and eating contests.

I would admit even though this was our first day of school in Hogwarts, it has been fantastic already. Today was a fantabulous day at Hogwarts. If I could, I would stay there forever. This school is more amazing than the other schools I have ever had. I would love to return again!

My Nursery Rhyme

My Version
"Little Boy Blue”

Little Infinite Boy Blue, come blow you ginormous horn. The loving sheep’s in the meadow, the chubby cows. Where is the little boy that looks after the sheep? “He’s under the haystock, fast asleep. Will you wake him? “No, not I; For if I do, he shall be sure to cry.
 Original Version
"Little Boy Blue, come blow your horn..."
Little Boy Blue, come blow your horn.
The sheep's in the meadow, the cow's in the corn.
Where is the boy that looks after the sheep?
"He's under the haycock, fast asleep."
Will you wake him? "No, not I;
For if I do, he'll be sure to cry."

An Unforgettable School Day.!!

Do you ever get that terrified feeling when its your first day of school in JH? Well on my first day of Junior High, I was terrified. I was worried what classes I would be in. Also if any of my friends would be in my classes. When I got the Schedule for my classes, I asked some of my friends what their classes were, and if they were in some of my classes. 
Finally it was the first day of school, and I told my mom I was really nervous, She looked at me and said “ Hun, I love you and it will be ok I promise.” I smiled and said “Ok I love you too mom.”  Before I walked in the school, I took a deep breathe and remembered what my mom had said. Then I found all my classes. I would get lost sometimes, but I would always find the way. I didn't think I would have my favorite class on the first day, but I really did like English. It was my favorite class, and it still is. 
About halfway through the school day, I thought to myself “My mom was right, the first day of school isn't always that bad.” When it was time for us to go home. When I got home, my mom started to ask me all these questions and I smiled and said,  “ School was great.” She replied, “See I told you the first day isn't always that bad.” And then we both started to laugh.

After a few weeks have gone by for school, I got used to my classes, and I also got over my fear. Just remember the first day of school isn't always that bad. It’s ok to have a fear for the first day, but it will always get better at the end. That day had changed my fear for JH.

Here is my room. My Bed, is a small bed about the size of a twin bed. I don't really go in my room that much..Im mostly out and about like going to the park, bike ride, walking my dogs, and all kinds of things like that. My dresser is tall, brown, and it has five drawers. It also holds my T.V. I, have a little statue of my Grandma and I. I got it two years ago on Christmas. She made it, so its very important to me. I always used to keep it in its box but, then one day I decided to take it out, now it sits in a high place where it won’t get broken like on top of my dresser. I have a Rock that my great grandpa painted and gave it to my siblings and I. So its very important to me. I leave it in the box where I keep my pictures of my family memories. I have a bear from my Great Grandpa. Its very important to me because, he died last month this summer on July 11, 2014, and it reminds me of him. 

My Great Grandpas Dog, her name is Kennedy. She is also very important to me because, she also reminds me of my grandpa. The color of my room is kinda White and Tan. I have a big closet its like a walk-in closet, If I don't want something to get broke like if its glass i put it up on the shelf in my closet. in My closet i have a box that I put my shoes in so my closet is organized. Also in my closet is a little glass vase that you can put pens/pencils or flowers in it.. The glass vase says “Live,Laugh,Love.” it’s very important to me because, my mom got it for me and I don't want it to break. So i keep it up on my shelf in my closet. My Room, is usually the cleanest room. My Bike is another treasure I leave it outside in the yard. I got it three years ago on Christmas. My parents bought it and it reminds me of where we used to live. I want to keep all my treasures in my heart forever. I am rich beyond measure.
