Poetry Jam: I am a Poet

Well, perhaps "poet" is going a bit too far.  Let's just say I wrote some verse this month for the kids' lunchboxes.  And, as we wrap up National Poetry Month, I thought I'd post them, for posterity, not including the acrostics I did with their names.  Good verse is harder than it looks.

haiku
Penguins on the ice
sliding down, swimming freely.
Antarctica rocks!

Bunny underground,
sleeping in her burrow home,
dreaming of carrots.

diamante
Strawberries
red, sweet
growing under leaves
good with creamy yogurt.
Delicious!

Chocolate
dark, sweet
makes me smile
best in homemade cookies.
Yum!

And the ever-traditional,

Roses are red,
Violets are blue,
You are our Bud/Sis
and we love you!
