Sunset brings the end of day
As the sun fades away
Colors of orange, pink and red
Paint the sky before we head to bed
2. “Autumn Leaves”
Autumn leaves falling down
Rustling as they hit the ground
Yellow, orange, red and brown
A beautiful sight all around
3. “Winter Snow”
Winter snowflakes softly fall
Covering rooftops, trees and all
A snowy blanket everywhere
Creating a quiet, peaceful air
4. “Spring Blossoms”
Spring blossoms, oh so bright
Filling the air with sweet delight
Cherry, apple, and magnolia trees
Dressed in pinks and whites galore, for all to see
Branches of the Oak
The oak tree stands so tall and strong,
Its branches reach up to the sky.
And nestled in its leaves among,
The birds and squirrels love to lie.
The oak tree’s trunk is thick and wide,
Its roots stretch deep below the ground.
This mighty tree will never hide,
But always be easily found.
The leaves that grow upon its boughs,
Are like a crown upon its head.
The oak tree’s beauty always wows,
And fills our souls with peace and stead.
So let us cherish this grand tree,
And all the good that it provides.
The oak tree’s branches, oh so free,
And all its wonders, there to abide.
The Shades of Blue
Blue is the color of the sea,
It’s where the dolphins love to be.
It’s also the color of the sky,
Where fluffy clouds go floating by.
Blue can be bright, like turquoise too,
Or deep and dark, like navy blue.
It’s a color that brings us joy,
Like bubbles in a child’s toy.
The blue jay perched upon a wire,
The morning glory in the mire.
The blue whale in the ocean’s deep,
The blue butterfly through forests peep.
So many shades of blue we see,
But all bring peace and harmony.
The color of the earth and sea,
It’s beauty forever will be.
The Family of Words
In the beginning, there was a word,
And with it came a family,
Each member, part of a herd,
A group of words, so pally.
The vowels and the consonants,
They work together as one,
With them, no plight or protests,
A team, always to have fun.
Of course, there are exceptions,
Their family, not so clear,
But they have their own reflections,
Unique, without a fear.
Rhymes and rhythms, they create,
Beauteous sounds, they produce,
Together, they anticipate,
The world, they introduce.
Love, dove, glove, above,
A family, that feels so soft,
Cozy words, making us tough,
When love is sought.
Chat, hat, rat, sat,
Words that sing of a rat-tat-tat,
Gossiping, laughing, a chit-chat,
Hummingbirds of word, you bet.
Bloom, room, gloom, zoom,
Words that create a sensory boom,
Visuals, they build with full bloom,
A family, not dark but full of room.
The family of words, star-studded,
A plethora of emotions it contains,
With them, memories all clouded,
Words, so pristine, never in vain.
The Family Tree of Words
From one root, words spread out,
Branching off in family trees,
In rhyme and rhythm, they shout,
Their stories and histories.
In the -ight family, we see,
A fight with might and sight,
A bright light shining free,
In the night, it’s a delight.
In the -ack family, we find,
A pack of black cats and snacks,
They attack with their sharp mind,
While we snack on some crackers.
In the -ing family, we hear,
The spring birds singing and winging,
Children playing and cheering,
Their joy and laughter ringing.
In the -ole family, we explore,
The whole goal of our soul,
Like a fishing pole, we adore,
The whole role of our goal.
In the -air family, we breathe,
The fresh air with care and flare,
We weave in our hair, a wreath,
To wear at the fair and share.
In the -ight family, we meet,
The sight of a knight and the height,
Of his might and his beat,
On his flight to the fight.
In the -unk family, we learn,
About the trunk of the elephants,
The spunk of the skunks,
And the funk of the funkadelic.
From a single seed, we grow,
A forest of words to show,
Our unity and diversity,
Our humanity and creativity.
So join me now, and let’s see,
How words connect you and me,
In this family tree of words,
That’s as diverse as the birds.
