1: THE COUNTRY! BY: ATHENA I drive by, I smell the air, I lift my chin up towards the sky, I wonder why, why, why, There's barely any country side The wind is blowing through my hair, But I don't care, No I don't care, I'm fine with it, In fact I am, I like it here, so free and true Listin' to some county blues, Me and you, just prancing around, Having fun, lettin' it go, Hey, hey, hey It's Sunday, Hey, hey, hey It's Sunday All around that country | HORSES By: Kieli Where ever I am I will be fine On these beautiful hoofs of mine My silky tail is streaming behind me If you are really fast you might find me My eyes sparkle in the light of the sun In the world I feel like I’m the only one My color has a big variety Us horses live in societies What flutters in the wind is my mane As beautiful as a lion’s mane My nose is very strong And can smell away very long My food is oats and hay So I can have energy to play I am a beautiful, horse
2: Tree Leaf Across the creek by the big green heap. I see my tree. Swaying in the wind being my best friend. There is no tree as far as the eye can see but mine.

6: Moon By Stephen When it is night, and the time is right, this creature stalks, everyone in its sight. It summons different creatures, and gives everyone a fright. Its light gives a warning, that shows to not wait for morning, and that it will never come. THE ROCKIN’ CYCLE by Stephen and Justin Blowing up Melting down Flying all over Flying all over Hits the ground Sinkin’ down And starts all over And starts all over

8: To Die Oh why, oh why do we have to die? I’d be anywhere even in bed. Rather than down here,it’s so dark, never clear, With earthworms that dine on my head. But immortality might not be good to me, Sometimes life might get rather dull. After thousands of years, I might even hate beers. I might as well wish I was a mole. If I were a tree, I’d live long time, And grow to a champion height. But if all I could do was provide shade for you, Life might just be a huge fright. So maybe this death serves a cause, It might not even be that bad. ‘Cause if you’re a tree or have immortality, you’d wish that you’d stuck with the life that you’d had. By Bjorn Tngstad
9: Stalactite By:Jacob The Stalactite hangs there tall and strong, water trickles down its sides, and drops onto the floor. the other ones start to trickle too, now there’s a symphony of water coming from those stalactites, drip,drop,splash,sploosh,drip,drip,drop. | snowboarding BY:Cooper I stand there ta the top of a hill waiting for the right moment. I'm just thinking and then “BAM” it’s time. Then i jump straight down the hill and fly across the snow. I ride up the hill and launch off the ramp. I glide through the air like a jet landing then taking off again. I touch the ground as soft as a bird landing on a tree. Then I felt like a plane that is flying with no fuel. Finally i go straight and come to a halt.
