City Poetry

Today in our poetry study, we looked at the following poem:

The City  by Langston Hughes

In the morning the city
Spreads its wings
Making a song
In stone that sings.
In the evening the city
Goes to bed
Hanging lights
About its head.

Afterward, the kids wrote their own poems about our city - Georgetown, KY.

Our Town Hall


When the clock tower
Strikes twelve,
The flowers start to grow,
The light poles turn on.
Oh, yes! This is my home.

We Never Made it to Town

At 12, the clock bells
So we walk uptown.
As the cars go by,
And we pass the library as well,
We see a tree,
A ginkgo tree,
And we see the leaves fall down.
We keep walking up to town.
We stop to rest
In the warm sun of summer
But we fall asleep
And we never make it to town.
