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 skyWe have prevailed.
