This is a poem Julian wrote for school. I coached him only a little; all the words are his. Pretty darn amazing, this kid of mine. The assignment was to use five of his spelling words. We used change, plants, year, still, animal.
Fall and Autumn: the Season Changes
Sunny, windy, puffy clouds
Colorful plants and trees
New books, a new school year
Spicy, crunching leaves and apple season--
I run in the fall air.
Rainy, dark, muddy; everything still.
Damp, dead, animals hiding
Moldy, cloudy moon.
Chilled to the bone.
I run from the ghost of Halloween.
