ORIGINAL POEMS 55 YEARS AGO (1957)

Details
Text Size:

Patricia Peer's 5th and 6th grade students at the old Waynedale Elementary School wrote this collection of original poems 55 years ago in the spring of 1957. I wonder where these people are now?

------------------------------------------------------------

"SPRING" by Judy Hammons
Spring, Spring,
Oh, wonderful Spring
When flowers start blooming
And children are zooming.
Oh, how I love the birds that sing.

------------------------------------------------------------

"SPRING RED BIRD" by Linda Norwalt
A Spring red bird am I
A sitting in a tree.
Singing songs of happiness
To cheer up you and me.

------------------------------------------------------------

"MY KITE" by Margaret Specht
When I fly my gret big kite,
It always gets up in the tree.
I try to get it out,
But it won't mind me.
I pull the string very hard
And it finally snaps.
There goes my poor kite;
I'll make another one perhaps.

------------------------------------------------------------

"FUNNY BUNNY" by Patricia Dennis
I saw the bunny one Easter day.
I was so happy; happy and gay.
The bunny was so little,
It made me laugh and giggle.
Spring Is Here by Connie Kohne
Spring is here-what a happy day.
The wind is blowing in a gentle way.
The grass will soon be very green.
Oh, what a gay, lovely scene.

------------------------------------------------------------

"A CHURCH" by Joyce Fisher
I am an old church, but I am alert.
My grass is green, and how I gleam.
When my bells ring, and the people sing;
You know it's time to come and bring
Your praises to the risen King.

------------------------------------------------------------

"EASTER DAY" by Larry Otis
On Easter day I like to play.
I get up and dress in fine array.
I look for my basket everywhere.
I look in the window and find it there.

------------------------------------------------------------

"EASTER TREAT" by Larry Edington
I'm a jolly jelly bean;
So round and sweet.
Sometimes I'm red, sometimes I'm green.
I'm a real Easter treat.

------------------------------------------------------------

"THE ROBIN" by Barbara Boxell
I am just a robin;
Who's just a bobbin,
When Spring is here.
I build my nest,
For baby red breast
When Spring is here.
I catch a worm,
And watch it squirm
When Spring is here.

------------------------------------------------------------

"LILY" by Sandra Bunsold
I'm a lilly white.
I'm a pretty sight.
Though I'm very light,
I can be quite bright.

------------------------------------------------------------

"GREEN" by Geary Bowers
I like to play in the Spring.
I'm the color green.
Oh, what happy smiles I bring,
When my face is seen.

------------------------------------------------------------

"BASEBALL" by Jerry Mowery
I'm a little round ball.
I love to fly, I love to fall.
When the Dodger's slug me,
I'm over the fence-Oh, weeeee
