Josh’s Poems



Quite a number of Josh’s homework lately involve poetry –reading poems and then answering some questions about what they’d read or having to write their own poems.

Below are a few of his early attempts at writing his own poems.  Of course, he chose to write about Star Wars characters.  I was more expecting poems of the rhyming kind, so when he came up with the first one (Jedi), I’d asked him about it.  He looked at me as if I haven’t a clue and said, “Not all poems rhyme, you know.”  Then he pointed out that he wanted something clever and different from what one would generally expect his class to come up with.

Jedi are generals.
Endless numbers.
During wars they fight without fear.
Indestructible.

CLONES

Clones are trained on Kamino.
The only soldiers with brains
And never have strains.

Their current unit of inquiry has to do with emotions and they were discussing about how colors sometimes represent certain emotions.   These are his color poems.

Dark in the midnight sky.
Dark.
Still .
Nothing.
Because everyone’s asleep.

Daisies.
Weddings.
Paper.

White is good.
White is bad.
White can mean happiness.
White can mean hate.

And people are sad when white is bad.

He is 6.
