Poetry Month

A Light Exists in Spring
   
       ~Emily Dickinson
 
A Light exists in Spring
Not present on the Year
At any other period --
When March is scarcely here

A Color stands abroad
On Solitary Fields
That Science cannot overtake
But Human Nature feels.

It waits upon the Lawn,
It shows the furthest Tree
Upon the furthest Slope you know
It almost speaks to you.

Then as Horizons step
Or Noons report away
Without the Formula of sound
It passes and we stay --

A quality of loss
Affecting our Content
As Trade had suddenly encroached
Upon a Sacrament.

To All My Great Excuses

I started on my homework
but my pen ran out of ink.
My hamster ate my homework.
My computer's on the blink.

I accidentally dropped it
in the soup my mom was cooking.
My brother flushed it down the toilet
when I wasn't looking.

My mother ran my homework
through the washer and the dryer.
An airplane crashed into our house.
My homework caught on fire.

Tornadoes blew my notes away.
Volcanoes struck our town.
My notes were taken hostage
by an evil killer clown.

Some aliens abducted me.
I had a shark attack.
A pirate swiped my homework
and refused to give it back.

I worked on these excuses
so darned long my teacher said,
"I think you'll find it's easier
to do the work instead."

Green Eggs and Ham

Do you like green eggs and ham?
I do not like them, Sam-I-am.
I do not like green eggs and ham!
Would you like them here or there?
I would not like them here or there.
I would not like them anywhere.
I do so like green eggs and ham!
Thank you! Thank you,
Sam-I-am!

Homework, Oh Homework, My Dog Thinks It’s Great

Homework, oh homework,
my dog thinks it’s great,
‘cause when he goes out,
he shares it with his date.

‘cause when he eats homework
his breath doesn’t smell.

Tree House
By: Shel Silverstein

A tree house, a free house,
A secret you and me house,
A high up in the leafy branches
Cozy as can be house.

A street house, a neat house, 
Be sure and wipe your feet house
Is not my kind of house at all-
Let's go live in a tree house.

Pancake?
By: Shel Silverstein 

Who wants a pancake,
Sweet and piping hot?
Good little Grace looks up and says
"I'll take the one on the top."
Who else wants a pancake, 
Fresh off the griddle?
Terrible Theresa smiles and says,
"I'll take the one in the middle."
