I give you:

The results of Poetry Friday!

We only had four people completely fail at the poetry form.  But that’s okay.  We shan’t tell them that they have failed.  But we did get some very nice cinquains today!

Here are some of my favorites:

But, as always, some people don’t quite get what’s going on.  But that’s okay.  The next two aren’t bad per se, they just weren’t quite what I was going for.

A little boy
Pityful, Helpful, faithful to the puppy
Treat it as his own friend.
He can pay it with all full price
I love you!
My little boy!
beautiful.
loneful.
warmful.
wonderful.

So anyways, today was a lot of fun for me at least.   And ninety percent of the poems turned out well!  We also played charades for awhile which was a lot of fun.  Especially when I made Dot (one of the men in the class) do Cinderella.  That was amusing. I also made our class monitor, Jack, do “Fish out of water,” since it was quite a bit more difficult than the others.

So all in all, a good day.
