|The teachers of the Metro Detroit Reading Council wrote two group poems at their March meeting.
The first is a rhyming acrostic.
Summer sun warms our soul,
glitters like a pot of gold.
Up above, in the sky so blue,
drying up the morning dew.
Now the flowers are in bloom,
chasing down the winter's gloom.
The second is a "Formula for Fun" poem, making use of "Alliteration - Simile, Metaphor, and Alliteration."
Beautiful, blinding, bright red sun, (alliteration)
shining and warming every one.
Happy like a smiley face (simile)
that follows you from place to place.
A big round ball up in the sky (metaphor)
that bakes wet swimmers quickly dry.
Wearing sun shades is such fun.
Beautiful, blinding, bright red sun. (alliteration)
