Poems by Isabelle, 2001

FLOWERS

Their petals are going round and round,
Their colors are all around,
Low to the ground and high in the trees,
Petals are here, Petals are there,
But flowers are everywhere.

BUNNIES

Hopping around,
Close to the ground,
Snuggling together,
Depending on the weather,
Little fluffy bodies,
These are bunnies.

Nature

The flash of jeweled wings,
The sparkling stream,
All of these in Nature I've seen.

The call of a bird,
The hum of a bee,
These are some sounds of nature you see.

The gentle breeze,
the warm sun,
I like nature, It is fun.

SNOW

Crystal flakes coming clear.
Snow and winter are finally here.

Cold and fluff all around,
Glittering on the ground.

Snowballs flying in the air,
Snowmen rising here and there.

All around is festive cheer.

HAPPINESS

Like a warmth spreading from head to toes,
Like the sun after it snows.
Like the stars in the galaxy,
Happiness can get you through harsh times.

GOOD BYE

"Good bye," the wind whispers on a windy day.
"Farewell," croaked the frog as I passed by its way,
"So Long," chirped the cricket as it hopped on its way,
See you later," hissed the snake slithering away,
"Good by," I told the teacher one winter day.

BUTTERFLYS

Butterflys fluttering high and low,
Not really caring where they go,
As long as the nectar is sweet,
They sit and sway in the breeze.

SEPTEMBER 11, 2001

It's raining over the country,
Raining salt tears.
The country is mourning its loss,
But sometime the sun will come,
And the rainbow of color will spread.

PAPER CRANE

You fold it there,
You fold it here,
You fold it and you fold it
Until flap, flap,
A crane comes near and takes it,
For you sold it!

BOOKS

Curl up, Snuggle up,
Listen to the story.

Drift away, to some day,
And don't worry about tomorrow.

LEAVES

Delicately, gently, softly falling,
Falling, floating to the ground,
Bright colors are all around,
Fall is here. Winter is near.

HALLOWEEN

Pumpkins, witches, bats,
Goblins, fairies, zombies,
Midnight is black, but not tonight.
Dots of light are hear and there,
Trick or treat is everywhere.

NATURE

The flash of jeweled wings,
The sparkling stream,
All of these in Nature I've seen.

The call of a bird,
The hum of a bee,
These are some sounds of nature, you see.

The gentle breeze,
The warm sun,
I like nature. It is fun.

CLOUDS

Drifting slowly,
Floating closely,
Changing shapes in the sky,

Pretty clouds making shade,
Floating gracefully accross the sky.

BLACK CAT

A black cat watched me one day.
With pale green eyes, it didn't look away.
A black cat watched me one day.

CHRISTMAS TREE

Lights going round and round,
Ornaments on the boughs,
Presents at its feet,
Icicles glittering on the needles,
And at the very top of it,
Is a star sparkling bright,
Drawing eyes, holding them tight.
Christmas night is very bright.
