To the great folks who turned out for the May 8, 2010 Poetry Scavenger Hunt at the Thomas Wolfe House. Families went searching for poetry and here's a couple examples of what they found:
The Coffee Shop
By Austin Wood with help from Lila Wells
May 8, 2010
Mmm, coffee and brownies,
With sausage thrown in:
Three of the best smells.
In a cold, icy glass,
Conversation between families
The juicer, like a lawnmower,
Cuts greens into a glass
For the lady in the
Yellow and orange flowered pants.
The coffee maker gargles,
Rich and dark,
Into a warm mug,
Bringing good breakfast memories.
The kaleidoscope floor makes me happy.
(By Noah, Eliana, Mira and Jeremy Phillips)
Wind in leaves, tractor buzz
Left face sunny, right face breeze
In the middle of warm and cold
The wind is blowing my shirt around
making it a bubble on my chest
At the store
There's an old lady singing breezy songs
The cat candy
Tastes like a fruit rocking horse and a slide
I see the Big Dipper every day
One side warm on the other cold
I wanna hear just one thing
Am I still your sweet one?
And what else?
