We Real Cool
By: Gwendolyn Brooks
The Pool Players. 
Seven at the Golden Shovel.

We real cool. We
Left school. We

Lurk late. We
Strike straight. We

Sing sin. We
Thin gin. We

Jazz June. We
Die soon.

Shall I compare thee to a summers day?
By: William Shakespeare
Shall I compare thee to a summer's day? 
Thou art more lovely and more temperate:
Rough winds do shake the darling buds of May,
And summer's lease hath all too short a date: 
Sometime too hot the eye of heaven shines,
And often is his gold complexion dimm'd; 
And every fair from fair sometime declines,
By chance or nature's changing course untrimm'd;
But thy eternal summer shall not fade
Nor lose possession of that fair thou owest;
Nor shall Death brag thou wander'st in his shade,
When in eternal lines to time thou growest: 
So long as men can breathe or eyes can see,
So long lives this and this gives life to thee.

Love is…
By: Anonymous
Love is a burning candle
It's not always easy to handle
It burns, but it's still beautiful
And it makes celebrations oh so meaningful

It's a sunset
Burning with romance
A song...
That makes you want to dance...

Tale as Old as Time
By: Parker Shepherd
Disney world was such a blast-A
It is one of the best memories of my past-A
Seeing Snow Whites house-B
Talking to the magical Mickey Mouse-B
Riding it’s a small world till we could take no more-C
And rode buzz light-year all while keeping score-C
Learning how to dance like Simba -D
While hear the sounds of the marimba-D
Dressing up like Cinderella-E
That Prince Charming man was a pretty fine fella-E...
