student poetsBookworms
by Iris and Lisa (grade 4)

We read all day we read all night
But something doesn't seem too right
We look through books, nothing there
Only stories about which we don't care

Another day. Another night,
Searching for the book that's right
Through fiction, friction, and alien abduction,
If only we found books with a worthy introduction...

We've looked too far, we've looked too high,
I wonder if the middle's right!
Heading over to the middle section
I wish I had good book detection!

Oh good, we've found a match!
To get it, let's open up the hatch
Shiny cover, Worthy introduction,
It's not about alien abduction, and definitely not destruction ...

It's about poetry, a poetry tree!
The one thing that really gets to me!
I love the differences, Has all my fave preferences,
Includes so many different experiences!

That's what I love about,
Makes me feel free to shout!
That's what I love about being a bookworm,
It's got everything that describes me!
