Anyway, I wanted to share a poem with you that we had to write for school! Tell me what you think. ;) Maybe Bailey Bo will post her poem too! Here's mine: it's called A Trip to the Beach. Enjoy!
The day was warm and bright,
the girl jumped out of the car and into the light
She couldn’t suppress a smile,
one that was wider than the river
She kicked off her flip-flops, sprinted towards the soft sand,
grabbed a handful, and gradually let it fall through her hand.
She started a small seashell collection,
And her Grandmother helped her make sand castles to perfection
Next her eyes shifted to the deep, blue water
But before she could move, a voice called for his granddaughter
She hurried back, was smothered with sticky sun-tan lotion,
Then she turned and ran again towards the beautiful, foaming ocean.
First went her toe, then came the rest of her
Feelings of bliss swarmed through her mind in a blur
Holding her breath, she closed her eyes and dove under
but when she submerged, she frowned at the sound of thunder.
The child’s eyes filled with tears,
as she looked up, and the dark clouds confirmed her fears.
Pretending she heard nothing, she continued to play,
but her Grandmother ran over, and said “I’m afraid that’s all for today!”
She solemnly made her way back to shore,
Grandfather sighed, and said “I wish you could’ve played more.”
As she dried off, and was about to step into the car,
she heard a familiar noise coming from afar
Her Grandfather smiled and gave her a dollar,
the young child laughed, and felt three feet taller.
Running towards the music, which grew louder with every stride,
she spotted the ice-cream truck, but got ran over and she died.
Yeah. Mmhmm. :) I actually hadn't intended for it to end like that, but I seriously couldn't think of anything to put at the end (and it had to rhyme with stride) so I just decided to surprise everyone. Anyway, I need to get back to my books! Have a great week! ♥
