More phrase lyrics. These were written by Middle School students. Their writing teacher is Hope Rapson. See the rubric here.


Sailing
      By Gwyneth Elaine Berry

Gliding over the water
The blowing of a gentle wind
To lay on the deck of the boat
Gliding over the water
  To break from the busy day
The laughing with family and friends
Gliding over the water


Rain
By Hannah O’Malley

Standing in the rain
The rattle of steady drops
To huddle in my jacket
Standing in the rain
To tromp through the deep puddles
The chattering of joyous birds
Standing in the rain


Dark Pines
By Libby Myers

The smell of dark pines
Tugging at my mind
To be free in the forest
The smell of dark pines
To observe the secret life
Standing among the trees
The smell of dark pines


Pendulum
By Nathan Johnson

Dancing behind glass
The steady keeping of endless time
To swing in perpetual motion
Dancing behind glass
To pace the busy day
The keeper of life's timeline
 Dancing behind glass
