Moving Words 2002 Student Poems-2

The student poems below have been chosen to be displayed on Arlington Metrobuses from October through December, 2002.

BLUE

Blue is the color of the sky.
Blue smells like cotton candy.
Blue makes me think of the pool.
Blue is the sound of a blue jay.
Blue looks like the deep blue sea.
Blue tastes like blueberries.
Blue feels like a blue whale.

Lisa Konort
2nd grade, Jamestown Elementary School

WHITE RABBIT

Running in the den
Is a little white rabbit
Eating carrot pie.

Rachel Wimmer
2nd Grade, Arlington Science Focus School

ONE RED FLOWER

One red flower,
Stands so pretty,
Straight and tall,
Not creased by the wind,
With plenty of life to spend
Before the winter bends
And crumples its will to live.
One red flower
Gives others the will to live.

Rachel Locke
4th Grade, Tuckahoe Elementary School

FIRE

Fire is like love
But not all the time.

Sally Solis
4th Grade, Drew Model School

CHILDHOOD

I stand outside the rusty gates,
The dusted woods behind me,
The old gray house brings memories
Of my childhood.

Laura Steele-Hick
6th Grade, Swanson Middle School

STORM CLOUDS

People can look blindly
At the beauty right before them,
Knowing something is there but unable to care,
Trapped in the torrents of their thoughts
As a cloud drifts overhead.

Rebecca Grace Fearing
8th Grade, Swanson Middle School
