Poem of the Month

Poem-

“When Autumn leaves

Are falling

And  Thanksgiving time

Is near

It warms the heart 

To think all of those 

Who mean so much 

All year.

Happy Thanksgiving.”

Poem of the Month

“It is the night when

Skeletons and goblins can be seen

It is the night when

The little girl in white has eyes that are green

It is the night when

Frankenstein has risen from the dead

It is the night when

Ghost that were trapped now have fled

It is the night when

The vampires hunt for fresh blood

To satisfy their thirst

Beware people around the world

Because today is October 31st”

Happy Halloween everybody! I hope you are being safe on this spooky holiday. Be sure to wear your mask and stay six feet away from other people when you go trick or treating. This poem was chosen because it’s Halloween season and I wanted to incorporate different costumes.

Sincerely,

You are as

The sun.

Powerful,

Great,

And Stunningly

Beautiful.

Never change.

This poem speaks out to me because no matter what people think of you remember to stand strong and stay standing. Don’t let your spirits down just because of what people tell you. Be yourself, there’s nothing wrong with it!
