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.
Cherish,
For what is grateful.
Have hopes,
Believe in your dreams.
Anything is possible;
Just believe.

5 Sense Poem

         Summer
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.
