Nebraska List Poem

    Heart of the country
Favorite color,
    Husker red
Favorite food,
    Corn on the cob
Pride and joy,
    No place like Nebraska

Persona Poem

I am a tree
People long to be free like me
but I'm not really free
My legs are stuck in the ground and I see the same things everyday

People peel my skin and climb on my arms like I'm a jungle gym!
And what I really hate is when they break my arms and use them as weapons.

Nebraska Poem

We wave to each other
on the highway
We help each other
with our problems
In Nebraska, we know each other
on a first name basis
In Nebraska, everyone is family

Five Senses Poem

Powder snow, cold ice, and freezing winds
Hot chocolate on a cold morning
Everything coated in snow
Frost covered grass and tree limbs
Whistling wind and boots crunching the snow
The taste of peppermint and candy canes

What really happened to the Little Engine That Could

The Little Engine
Left the station
Heading to the hill
Gaining speed
And so he reached it and began
Climbing the hill
He started to chant
I think I can
I think I can
Close to the top
He came to a stop
At the side of the hill
His strength faded
He began to roll down
Reaching an extreme speed
He saw and oncoming train
Bigger than him
They collided
The little engine died
Because thinking you can isn't enough to accomplish anything
You have to believe

Found Poem

One life
Decisions, ideas, and trust
It is fascinating
Don't lose faith
You have to find what you love
Death is the destination we all share

Metaphor Poem


Anger is a monster
Waiting to be let out of its cage

Anger is a bomb
Waiting for a spark

Anger is an evil
That takes over our minds

Anger is a monster
