Poetry by Kayla

Last year in Kayla's Lit class they did a unit on poetry. One of their projects was to create their own collection of poems that had different elements like haiku, simile, metaphor, rhyme, etc. I'm sure Kayla's teacher helped her with sentence structure and fleshing out the body of the poem once Kayla came up with topics, but overall she had to come up with the ideas and verbalize as best as she can what she wanted to say in her poems.

Here are a few of my favorite poems with my favorite being her metaphor of life as a mountain.

Life Is A Mountain
Life is a mountain
high in the sky
It makes me tired
to climb up the mountain
The mountain is big
with pretty things to see

In the sky birds fly
High above the waves they fly
the birds are seeing

A Happy Birthday
Lucas, Happy Birthday!
You're nine years old today
You are a nice brother
I don't want any other
You are sleepy today
But with you I love to play

The Dolphin
The dolphin is swimming in the sea
The dolphin likes singing and dancing in the sea
The dolphin is swimming in the sea
Just like me
