Poetry Day

We wrote poems today!  It was pretty fun.  We used this poem by Grace Nichols as our template:

Sky

Tall and blue
true and open

So open my arms have room
for all the world
for sun and moon
for birds and stars

Yet how I wish I had the chance
to come drifting down to earth—
a simple bed sheet
covering some little girl or boy
just for a night

But I am Sky
that’s why

Here are some of the results.

Moon

White and wonderful
sad and adorable

So see with my eyes
when it’s night
I feel what a wonderful world

But how I wish I looked around the world
so I wipe away all women’s tears

But I am moon
that’s why

By Urnaa


Mountain

Broad and tall
Green and beautiful

I have a lot of flowers and trees
for all the world
for animals and rivers
for rock and fruits

But how I wish I had the chance to create another world
because this world is very dirty and dangerous

But I’m mountain
that’s why

By Erdenesaikhan


Ocean

Wide and blue
big and mineral

I have three brothers that are everywhere
but how I wish I could meet them
because I don’t know where they are

By Dolgoon


Moon

Big and grey
dark and relaxing

So when I close my eyes
it becomes dark
all the world is sleeping

Yet how I wish I had the chance to become Sun
I am always shining all things
and give happiness everywhere

Because I’m Moon
I can never change

By Jagaa


Sun

Hot and crystal
shiny and yellow
golden and wonderful

If I were not Sun, I couldn’t shine on all things
yet how I wish I had the chance to become Moon
because I would like to shine when couples are on dates

Bird or Fish?

Hello everybody!

Today we wrote about whether we’d rather be birds or fish, and why.  Here are some of the answers!

I would rather be a bird.  In my opinion, bird is symbol of freedom and feel nice air.  If I were a bird, I would travel round the world.  Especially I want to go to Egypt.  And next I would see Seven Wonders.  And I would meet my sister in Switzerland.

Why don’t I want to be a fish?  Fish can only swim in rivers, oceans, and lakes.  Fish can’t breathe, can’t see wonder nature.  Maybe fish can see blue sky, but fish can’t feel what a wonderful thing that is.  Because of this, I don’t want to be a fish.  That’s not interesting.

I think that I would rather be a bird.  Because it can fly and live a very free life.  So bird want to go everywhere, it can.  And bird’s life is not dangerous.  If I were a bird, I want to fly.

Why don’t I want to be a fish?  Fish is very endangered animal.  Because hunters catch fish and big fish eat small fish.  Another reason is fish’s shape is various and stupid.  Finally, bird is symbol of peace.

I would rather be a bird. If I were a fish I would be very unhappy and I wouldn’t want to live. Because fish is not freedom animal. I want to fly so I would rather be a bird. Bird is a freedom and happy animal. Hunters hunt a lot of fish so I don’t want to be a fish.
