When I look at the sky, 

I remember a bird in the air

It came on my finger,

but now it isn't there,

after, I looked in the sky 

it was exacltly where it was

I looked at the clouds

and my bird was flying around in the air

and it was always there.

Broken Home (based on Bob Dylan’s ballad, “Blowin’ in the Wind”)

How many times can I take

all these insults

from someone who’s related to me?

How many times can I listen

to all these curse words

from someone who’s supposed to be a lady?

How many times can she beat me

with the cable wire?

How many times can someone

hit, smack, or punch me

and expect me to listen to her?

How many times can we continue to argue

                                          when we are supposed to be Mother and Son?

The Icicle

Like a v
Big as key
 
has a spike
glows in the night
 
Its a carrot
But doesnt squeak like a parrot
 
It is made of water
But doesnt do magic like
 
it is a vally
but doesnt sing like kelly
 
It wont hope
but it will pop
 
its like eiffel tower
but it doesnt have any power
 
It will beam
but it wont be keen
 
It is pointy
but there are ninety
 
it is icy
but it will be spiky
 
its an icicle
but doesnt ride a bicycle
 
it has light
But it wont be polite

Great Fire of London
 
The Fire of London burns and flickers.
With broken hearts the people fled
Bringing all their goods with them
On carts, bringing any tuppence at all.

Flee to the river! Flee!

- Lily Webber, age 8

 

 

Vesuvius


You wake up in a calm, silent atmosphere.
Then, like a spilled glass of fire, lava
Pours down the side of volcano Vesuvius.
People scream and suffocate in
The burning, black smoke.
Death and doom close in.
Years later the victims come back as a
Plaster cast, like a ghost.

Volcanoes

The morning, fresh with warm sun.
Only to vanish, like a trick in thick dark and
Doomifying smoke.
Evilness comes as flashing, flaming fire.
 
Screaming turns to silence.
Dead bodies are white in plaster.

The Fight for the signed Harry Potter book!

“Its mine” She said.

“No its not!” He replied.

“We all think it’s yours!” they shouted and cried.

“Give it back!” I demanded.

“It’s mine fair and square.

It cost a lot of money,

and it’s terribly rare”

They pushed and they shoved

‘till their arms all dropped off.

They all think it’s theirs

but really it’s not!

It’s not everyday when I walk past the shops,

that J.K. Rowling’s in the bookshop!

Stars

They watch over us.

The angels say hi.

The stars twinkle in the sky,

A hundred feet high.

When we are snuggled up tight,

For the night.
