My Favorite Poem

My favorite poem is called Where the Sidewalk Ends by: Shel Silverstein. I like this poem because it shows great imagery and hooks you in to make you want to read it.

There is a place where the sidewalk ends
And before the street begins,
And there the grass grows soft and white,
And there the sun burns crimson bright,
And there the moon-bird rests from his flight
To cool in the peppermint wind.

Let us leave this place where the smoke blows black
And the dark street winds and bends.
Past the pits where the asphalt flowers grow
We shall walk with a walk that is measured and slow,
And watch where the chalk-white arrows go
To the place where the sidewalk ends.

Yes we’ll walk with a walk that is measured and slow,
And we’ll go where the chalk-white arrows go,
For the children, they mark, and the children, they know
The place where the sidewalk ends.

My Favorite Toy

When I was little, I just couldn’t live without my Legos. They meant the world to me and were the very best. They came in many sizes and shapes too! So that you could make things with them. When I played had my Legos I would play with them for hours a day. My Legos and I were inseparable! To me, they were the best toys ever! Without Legos, I don’t know where or what I’d be. And I will always cherish the memories of playing with them as a little kid.
