Plain sticky notes


Beads of spring rain slipping slowly down the wind chimes Quietly dozing under a clock without hands the museum keeper Freshly fallen snow opening a new package of typing paper Summer evening the grandchildwaves once more at the empty road Waiting dry snowflakes fall againstthe headlights On the mountain slope the stillness of white pines in the falling snow Deep whithin the stream The huge fish lye motionless facing the current Time after time caterpiller climbs the broken stem then probes behind Half of the minows whithin the sunlite shadow are not really there The sparkler goes out and with it the face of the child The names of the dead sinking deeper and deeper into the red leaves The circus tent all folder up October mist An empty elevator opens and closes

Edgar Allan Poe!

Edger Allan Poe was on of

the most different poet he

invented the horror or science

fiction books. He wrote a

famous poem called the

 "Black Cat"and he also  wrote

so many other poems but

I cannot type them it would

 take me about a month as

 slow as I type.

2nd Place Winner of The John Milton Poetry Contest!!!

Forever Remembered Star


John Milton Is like a star,

burning with an exhilarating flame

Of knowledge and passion

But yet so lost in the darkness

Of the world.


Like every star in the sky,

John Milton is full of loneliness and independence

But never close was even close to being alone.


And just as ever star stands still,

With no movement over time

His poems made time stand stillin our past history


But like every star

He burned out of existence

And leaving only but a memory

And even though he is gone

Our rememborance of him will live on forever



Our Favorite Poems!!

"Nothing Gold can Stay"     

"Theme for English B"

"Oh Captian My Captian"



John Milton is back......

As You know we are now studing John Miton. He was a poet and a very outspoken guy who wanted his chance to change life!!

Maya Angelou!!

We have read two of Maya's poems so far and we all like them. She has taught us valuble life lessons about race and just all of life. She is a great person and deserves much recongnition!!!

Short Stories

We did a unit on short stories and a few people actually went to see the opera Carmen. We read the short story Carmen in class but the kids that saw the play said that there was absoutly no comparing the two and that the opera was so fantastic it was hard to describe!!!! 

Gift of The Magi!!

We have just finished reading the short story "The Gift of The Magi!!" It was a story of selfless giving. The theme of this story is love both people bought gifts for the other one but in order to do that the sold their favorite possentions to buy their spouses gift. But what they got rid of their spouse had bought something to use with that possention. The story has a very powerful ending and just an all around great theme!!

The Icing of The Cream!!

Our latest story was "The Icing of The Cream." This story tells us about the history of ice cream. It tells us how it was made ,who made it and when they made. It is a more interesting story than most of the others we have read this year!!

Raymond's Run!

In class we read "Raymond's Run". This was about a boy who was mentally challenged and his sister, Squeaky, kind of helped him.
