I Am From

I am from my box of Famous Five books and my apron

from the national parks and my summer break

I am from my forgiving mom and dad

And from “Matha, Pitha, Guru, and Devam”

I am from the Earth 

Whose plants give off Oxygen

I am from being bored and playing Scrabble

I am from my violin 

I am from Kamala and Saroja

I am from rajma, tacos, and lemon rice

I am from those moments when I am reading Little Women

Limerick

There once was an old mapmaker

Who was also a bad baker

He baked an ointment cake

Made frosting with a rake

He liked to play The Awaker

Haiku

Is an omnivore

Sleeping all winter in dens

Is big and furry

A widespread mammal

It hibernates in winter

Brown, white, black, and gray

Acrostic Poems

DISNEY

Disney Princess,

Is that ship full of treasure for Ariel?

So Cinderella’s fairy godmother casts a spell,

Now Rapunzel has escaped from the tower

Elsa creates a winter wonderland in the middle of summer

You’re dreaming, Aurora!” says Merryweather.

LUCKY

Leprechauns aren’t

Unlucky

Cauldrons of gold

King of the clovers

You can’t ever see a leprechaun because they hide.

CHIRP

Call the birds

Here birds sing

In your backyard in the park

Ringing in your ears

Please listen to the birds

PRINCESS

Pretty

Ruler’s daughter

Is kind

Never tires of helping others

Crown on her head

Everyday

She grins

She is helpful

FAIRY

Flutters in the air

A kind, small, and gentle woman who is tiny

If someone needs help, she

Runs to help

You should meet one
