Poetry

Ellen not only writes books, but also poems, for young readers. She has taught poetry to third, fourth, fifth and sixth graders. Some of her poems will be featured here on Kids’ Clicks for you to read!

The first poem I’ll share with you is called Foursquare.

Foursquare

High-flying

pound-bounce

hit -the-ground

tiger pounce

 

Fist down,

bash -crash!

Palm slap,

mash – smash!

 

Skid the line

corner shot

slam the ball

where that kid’s not

 

Ball wails

ball sails

ball makes

jet-smoke trail

 

Wing  sting

Ping zing

sizzling

     ball  

    of   sun

 

Whistle  sings

 

Bell  rings

 

game’s

   all

                done.
