Be a Writer class creates “book spine poetry”

logoThe Be A Writer class walked to the Warren County Public Library to participate in a poetry writing exercise – writing “Book Spine Poetry.” The challenge was to place book titles together in order to form a poem, consisting of at least 7 lines. Our students rose to the challenge and created some unique poetry using this technique. Below are some samples of their work:

“Winter”

By: Anna, Rachana, Rita, and Kami

Whoosh went the wind
Over the river
Let it snow
The smallest snowflake
The Christmas Hope
Waiting for the Evening star
The secret to freedom
Some Kind of Fairytale
Life without summer
And the good brown earth
Snow.
Winter.

“Summer”

By: Anna, Rachana, Rita, and Kami

Summer
Endless
Time of My Life
Seasons of tomorrow
Burn Bright,
The sun,
The secret to freedom

“Dark”

By: Alex

When My Heart Was Wicked
Darkness Blames Her
Dead is Just a Rumor
Delirium
Shatterd Souls
Gasp
Fragile Spirits

“The Nightmare”

By: Kennedy

Dark Light
Dead Silence
Underworld
Empire of Shadows
Welcome to the Dark House
House of Steel
Don’t Go
Close Your Eyes
Awakened
The Nightmare

“Last Judgement”

By: N and Noah

Against the law,
The testimony
Until I die
Should I die
My second death
Dead peasants
Sworn Sword

“Humans and Animals”

By: Sam Frey

A small brown dog with a wet pink nose
The fox went out on a chilly night
Where did bunny go
Percy gets upset
Preschool to the rescue
Surprise!
