Poetry Challenge-Poem #7


The Most Important Thing
Inspired by Margaret Wise Brown


The most important thing about poems is that you can share it with a friend.
Some poems can be short. 
Some poems can be long. 
Some poems feel like a breeze on a summer night.
Some poems feel like snow, so white, so pale that it could use some color.
Some poems taste like strawberry dipped in dark dark chocolate
Some poems taste like mint candy...sweet but strong
Some poems smells like fresh bread coming out of the oven
Some poems smells like a delicious comforting chicken noodle soup
Some poems sounds like thunder crashing
Some poems sounds like mellow music playing
Bu the most important thing about poems is that you can share it with a friend.

What a fun day you had today!

I really like The Important Book and I like that you used it to model a poem.

I especially love your food images! You're making me hungry for more poetry!

What a surprise when I peeked at your profile -- A Year of Reading lives in Columbus, too!

I use the Important Book after every unit of study I teach...it is a great shared writing activity for the students to consolidate all the they have learned about a topic. I like that you chose to write a poem using this framework.
