    My Police Car

    My police car is zooming about,
    with its wheels at top speed.
    It can catch bad guys
    and robbers. It is
    the most important
    car in a city. I like
    my police car. It is as
    good as my house
    and as nice as the trees.

    Winter days, they are so cold.
    Winter is nice, but it seems rather bold.
    It takes away fall! It opens up spring!
    Winter is part of the seasonal ring.

    My Cat

    My cat is gray,
    He loves to play.
    He chases me when I drink tea.

    Standing on the podium
    With a thrilled smile drawn across my face,
    With four glossy, glistening, golden medals
    Dangling around my neck.

    All I hear is excitement
    While on the top of the podium.
    I salute with a joyous trophy
    Sitting in my satisfied hands.

    A once-in-a-lifetime experience
    Finally happening
    When winning everything
    There is to win.

    Puffy pancake puffs,
    as yellow as the sun
    shining on sand at the beach,
    are steaming when you open them up.
    Their sweet milk chocolate chips,
    melted inside,
    are as brown as dirt.
    They're as hot as a stove.
    Sticky syrup smells so good.
    Eaten and enjoyed on my birthday—
    a special occasion.

    Something lies in the forest to see—my tree.
    Silver and grey, it fell long ago.
    In the dirt I see my silver tree.
    For life, I know it will help me as I go.
    For shade and shelter it will give me,
    Oh, my silver tree.

    Birds

    Birds tweet
    Birds chirp
    Birds fly
    And dive
    Birds tweet
    Birds leap
    They sing
    Tweet tweet tweet
    And chirp chirp chirp
    Then they soar into the sky
    And come back down
    Then snuggle up in their nest
    Sleep sleep sleep
    Good-bye.

    In Winter…
    Crisp air is all around me.
    Crisp air nips my ears.
    Crunch! Crunch! goes the snow.
    As I walk down the hill
    I feel my coat pressing
    Against my arms
    Keeping me safe
    From the fighting, restless wind.
    The water, frozen solid.
    A crystal shining through
    The endless white.
    In Winter.

    We do math,
    My mom says, "Take a bath!"
    Science, studying life,
    She cuts carrots with a dull knife.
    Spelling,
    We don't like it, us boys.
    "Clean your room! Too many toys!"
    And Social Studies,
    Wow, the Revolutionary War,
    She makes cookies, I ask,
    "May I have some more?"

    My Teacher

    My teacher is very nice.
    She gives me a lot of tests.
    She teaches me new things,
    and I think she's the best.
