A Little Poetry

Black: A Color Poem


Dalmatian spots,

Kitty cats.

Santa’s boots,

Old top hats.

A hockey puck,

A button nose.

A spring bear cub,

A fire hose.

Karate belt,

Midnight sky.

Leather jacket,

Black berry pie.

A garden spider,

A jelly bean.

A tire swing,

An African Queen.


White: A Color Poem


A wisp of cloud,

A wedding veil.

A bright round moon,

A ship’s full sail.

Baby’s breath, a wedding bow,

Smooth dove wings, cold Winter snow.

A lightning bolt,

A spooky ghost.

A slice of bread,

A bubbly toast.

Mother’s milk, a polar bear,

Queen Anne’s Lace, Grandmother’s hair.

Reindeer Dance

Reindeer prance to Winter’s dance,

Making beautiful arcs in the sky.

Racing beneath the Christmas Star,

They leap, they soar, they fly!


In wake of the bright moonlight,

They guide a magical sleigh.

With a touch of lightening speed,

They ride far and away.


Alighting on each rooftop,

They help deliver bundles of joy.

Santa climbs down the chimney,

With a toy for each girl and boy.


As the morning dawn draws near,

They dash to their home in the cold.

Each star, each cloud, each babe,

Touched with Christmas gold.


Teddy Bear Tea

Teddy told Rabbit and Rabbit told me, 

To meet them at three for afternoon tea.       

Rabbit said, “Pass the message on,”

And with a hip-hop, she was gone.

Her fluffy white tail,

Easing down the trail.    


With a big smile on my face, 

I quickened my leisurely pace. 

Following her firm command, 

I took up the task at hand. 

I wandered through the wood,

Doing what I could, 

To help spread the word,

Until everyone had heard, 

Of the Teddy Bear Tea, 

Today, at promptly three.    


As the time for tea drew near, 

Animals came from there to here. 

In wave upon beautiful wave,  

From every lake, burrow, and cave.

Deer, chipmunks, and snakes,

With berries, tarts and cakes,

Came together beneath a tree,

With Teddy, rabbit and me,   

For tea at promptly three.

It was a grand sight to see! 

Under a sky of sweet baby blue,

We met friends who were honest and true.

In colors of black, brown, and tan, 

We feasted, we sang, and we ran.


The party was happy and gay,

Until night overtook the day, 

And we could no longer stay. 

With happy hearts we gazed up at them moon, 

Knowing that we would see each other soon, 

For yet another jolly afternoon, 

Of tea at promptly three, 

With Teddy under the tree.

A spider spins a web of silk,
A cookie’s favorite friend is milk.

Rocking Horse, Fairy Dust

Babies, toddlers, girls and boys,
Santa’s elves make lots of toys.

A pirate’s chest is filled with gold,
A princess can be brave and bold.

Children Play, Bells Chime
Saturday, Bed Time
A ticking clock goes round and round,
A whisper is a soft, soft sound.

Corn Starch, Halloween
Month of March, King and Queen
Every baseball needs a bat,
A cowboy wears a big, round hat.

Carousel, Pocket Book
Wishing Well, Swedish Cook
Pigs say oink and cows say moo,
A crying ghost says boo-hoo.

Scrambled Eggs, Talking Lizards
Chicken Legs, Wacky Wizards
Lords and ladies liked to dance,
Shorts are just really small pants.

Pot of Gold, Wheat and Rye
It’s Time To Say Good-Bye,
Before our rhyme is all done,
It’s your turn to make up one.
Have fun!

Trick Or Treat

By: Ellwyn Autumn & Noel Cedric Harrison

Trick or Treat,

Rhyme and reason,

It’s the spooky

Hallow season.

Trick or Treat,

You and me,

What a wicked

Sight to see.

Trick or Treat,

Truth or dare,

We intend to

Stomp and scare.

Trick or Treat,

Poison and potion,

Eerie things

Are set in motion.

Trick or treat,

Round and round,

The dead are

Rising from the ground.

Trick or Treat,

Up is down,

Zombies shamble

Through the town.

Trick or Treat,

Witch or Were,

Steamy cauldrons

In the Square.

Trick or Treat,

Black and blue,

Come with me and

Stir your brew.

Trick or Treat,

Black and white,

Ghosts and goblins

Haunt and fright.

Trick or Treat,

East Meets West,

Scaring people

Is the best.

Trick or Treat,

Here and there,

Hags on broomsticks

Fill the air.

Trick or Treat,

Night and day,

Ghouls and wraiths

Have come to play.

Trick or Treat,

Bells and buttons,

Vampires are

Bloody gluttons.

Trick or Treat,

Bats and cats,

Be careful

Of rabid rats.

Trick or Treat,

Frick and frack,

Go away and

Don’t come back.

Trick or Treat,

Big and small,

Happy Haunting

To one and all.

Star Flowers

A little house on a hill,

Had a little flower mill.


Cosmic fairies from near and far,

Collected the flowers in a jar.


Each blossom brought it’s own delight,

In shades of blue and red and white.


The blossoms were brought before the Night King,

Who became inspired and began to sing.


The King’s voice wove a magic spell,

That made the blooms hum like a bell.


Shimmering, the pretty flowers,

Burst forth with glittering showers.


Under the King’s enchanted care,

Each joyful spark danced on air.


He waved them on and spread the far,

Each becoming a little star.

Darkened Lighthouse

A melancholy grips me,

It tears at my heart.

My children’s minds unravel,

They’re falling apart.

I am a darkened light house,

A beacon lost from sight.

I weep, I scream, I pray,

Into the torment of their night.

Piece by piece they leave me,

My heart aches more each day.

My wishes for their future,

Are woeful and astray.

18 Years

18 years of joy

of happiness and excitement too,

18 years of love and laughter

in one enjoyable you.

You are my darling daughter

my precious baby girl,

I adore your green-blue eyes

and every single curl.

You have my sense of humor

and your daddy’s strength of will,

You are very independent

with a multitude of skill.

You have a tender heart,

it’s as warm as the sun,

You have a flare for art

and knack for a good pun.

I love you, love you, love you

you are my daughter from end to end,

I love you, love you, love you

you are my sunshine and my friend.
