If Then Poems
If your hair is too long Get it cut If your haircutter cuts it too short Wear a hat If you can wear a hat to school Get a wig If your mother says it's too expensive Make your own.
If your foot is stuck in a trashcan Put oil on your foot If the oil makes the garbage smell Use a clothes pin on your nose If the clothes pin falls off Then spray perfume on it If the perfume attracts an animal Then run.
Sadness is blue. It sounds like a loon. It smells like an upside-down cake. It tastes like brussel sprouts. It looks like a rainy day. Sadness feels like a day that never ends.
Happiness is yellow.
It sounds like birds twittering.
It smells like daisies.
It tastes like pound cake.
It looks like a warm summer day.
Wishes to dance like a professional
Dreams of no more poverty
Wants to live in England
Who wonders what space is like
Who fears spiders
Who is afraid of murderers
Who likes writing
Who believes in leprechauns
Who loves books Who loves Kung Pao Chicken Who loves TV Who loves to be outside
Who plans to be an author Who plans to live in England Who plans to speak German, Japanese and French
Who loves snow
Winter Is Poem Winter is. Slippery streets for colorful cars frigid air and powdery snow glistening flurries blindingly white new-fallen snow.
Winter is.. Children sitting by the bright fire after a long day of playing marshmallows sitting in hot chocolate, like kings on their thrones. Making brightly glittering snow angels.
White powder drifting to the cold, hard
hard ground late at night.
Waking up bright and early for an extremely
fun snow day.
Seeing shining icicles hanging from a
blanketed white roof.
