by Jenny W.

Wind: I pull you off the tree in Autumn
Leaf: I keep you clean and clear
Wind: You come in many colors and I don’t
Leaf: Well, it doesn’t matter because you help the earth. You travel more than me.
Wind: True
Leaf: But together we help the planet earth.
Wind: Swoosh!
Leaf: I am now out of the tree!

Hot & Cold
By Tya N.

Cold: I can freeze you
Hot: I can burn that freeze

Cold: I’m best with lemonade at summer
Hot: I’m best with hot chocolate in the winter

Cold: I’m cooler than you
Hot: but I’m hotter than you

Cold: I can cover you in show
Hot: I can snow and turn it to heat

Hot: Miami heat loves me. They put heat in their name and sweat
Cold: Santa Claus loves me
Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer loves me too

Hot: Heaters are my followers
Cold: AC and fans are my followers

Hot: I’m so hot that the AC will make me warmer
Cold: Well if you want to go throw me (SLAP)

Hot: I can just sizzle you and you’ll get hot
Cold: In your ice dream hot and cold cat fight

Hot: I’m tired of this nonsense
Cold: Me too

Warm: BFF like forever.

Angels and Demons
by Taylor Corrine B.

Angel: I’m nice.
Demon: I bring up the fire.
Angel: I can put it down.

Demon: I am awesome at making mischief.
Angel: That is just plain rude.

Demon: Da, da, da, da. I’m not listening.
Angel: Pay attention!
Demon: Why should I?

Angel: We shall fight.
Demon: I’m shocked!

Angel: Singing powers....
Demon: Ah, my ears, it burns.
Angel: Perfect!
Demon: I feel so cuddly inside.
I’m an angel.

Day & Night
By Jenna P. & Priscilla C.

Day: I bring the sunshine.
Night: I bring the cold.

Day: You can stay up during the day.
Night: You can rest at night.
Day: I can take a nap.
Night: The moon comes out.

Day: You can play sports during the day.
Night: You can go out and party at night.

Day: Pandas and animals play at the zoo.
Night: Owls and bats come out at night.

Day: But, during the day you do not have to do homework.
Night: You can go to a late night movie and you do not have to go to school.

Day: You can call your friends longer during the day.
Night: You can go trick or treat at night.

Day: Let’s be friends.
Night: We could have sleepovers.
Day: Or we could have play dates.

Night: Well, we could have popcorn.
Day: Or, we could have caramel apples.
Night: We will have both.
Day: OK.

Night: Good Night.
Day: Good Day!
