Original Poetry

A Classroom is…

A noisy zoo,
with smellls galore.

A great chef’s kitchen,
with a swinging door.

A galaxy,
with orbits precise

An engine,
revving and full of life.

An outdoor market,
with negotiations,

And the sparkle of hope
For many a nation.

This is beautiful. What a wonderful model for students as they begin to write poetry. Inspiring.

This is great! It would have been perfect for Miss Rumphius' Metaphor Poetry Stretch!

(the smells of the noisy zoo cracked me up!!)
