Patricia's Poems

Patricia shared these poems with me yesterday. She had wrote them entirely on her own! Yahoo! The poems are not perfect in their rhythm/rhyme but I was impressed b/c we haven't covered how to write poems yet.

We do memorize a lot of poetry. (I attended a homeschool conference when Patricia was a baby & one of the sessions was on writing poetry. He said that memorizing it was the best foundation to writing b/c you get it into your head. He was right!) Here is the fruit of memorization- enjoy:

"Books"
by Patricia Ellen Tully

Books are good for conversations,
books are good for fun;
Books are good for anything that you've ever done.

There's books about Washington,
and books full of facts too.
There's even a book about how a cow can moo!

Books are good for writing thoughts,
and writing someone's history down.
There's some books that will teach you about a noun.

Books are good for conversations,
books are good for fun;
Books are good for everything that you've ever done.


"Growth"
by Patricia Ellen Tully

A little seed you sow will soon grow
into a flower we all love.

A tiny egg breaks
and in it a baby bird awakes.

A tiny little baby will grow maybe
into a handsome man.

A little bit of knowledge, if it's wisely sown,
will soon be found to have grown and grown and grown.
