Friday Poem of the Week: Veterans Day

By Kaycee C., 3rd Grade, Maple Elementary School

Veterans are big and strong
They will march all along

Veterans fight for our safeness
They fight for their straightness

They fight from their heart
For us to have a good start

We’ll follow their lead
For us to succeed

Veterans War Poem
By Tetiana M., 5th Grade, Maple Elementary School

Bullets fly across the battle field,
as mines explode under the feet of unsuspecting men.
Hand grenades get tossed into the air.
Dirt, rocks and gun powder rise up.
Commands are flowing through in sound waves
Ears go deaf as shocking sounds appear close.
Beads of sweat run down their faces.
Vision blurs as little bits of debris sting their eyes.
Screams burst into the air as one by one, each man falls.
The last enemy dies, victory shouts into the open sky
We have prevailed.
