Lyric Poem: Baseball is life​​
​​
Some people think it’s just a game
And that is really quite a shame
It’s more than that
It’s more than just a ball and bat

A feeling when the bat goes crack

We wait to hear the umpires shout
Tension is rife
And that is why baseball is life!

Free verse: Tornado

Destruction is all she can see
For miles and miles

It happens so quickly
The people react
Neighbor with neighbor
A helping hand
Relief is all on their mind
Cleaning all in their path
A little girl
Weeps on the sidewalk
Tears of joy
How did this happen?
What have we done to deserve
This?
Rebuilding is all she can see
For miles and miles
On end

Then after that we had to work and train

Thinking about it just makes my feet sing
My spirits are lifted, my feet take wing
A rush of adrenaline it does bring

The race begins as we freeze in the cold
Our legs start to move showing that we’re bold
I said to myself, this running is fun
Even though it is a pain in the bun

To run to run is a glorious thing
Thinking about it just makes my feet sing
My spirits are lifted, my feet take wing
A rush of...
