Lila Holmes Poems
The sun warms me to my core. The green grass engulfs me
Where I'm from
I am from long car rides and white knuckled fists. I am from trickling creeks and infinite forests.
Family is a car. Parents are the engine,
Having a Coke with you
is even more fun than going to San Sebastian, Irún, Hendaye, Biarritz, Bayonne or being sick to my stomach on the Travesera de Gracia in Barcelona partly because in your orange shirt you look like a better happier St. Sebastian partly because of my love for you, partly because of your love for yoghurt
To be a Thespian
To be a Thespian Is the greatest joy in life I can be more than one person I've live more than twice.
Death is so terribly final
Death is so terribly final It symbolizes the end Life could have been better without my fickle friend
My Heart is a Violin
My heart is a violin, All shiny a new. The body is free from chips and scratches, It's f-holes are still perfectly shaped,
The raindrops tap on my window, pitter patter pitter patter. Taking part in natures rhythmic show,
If only I could be nicer, I might have more friends. If only I could be smarter, my bad grades would come to an end.

The sun warms me to my core.
The green grass engulfs me
I watch the clouds float by.
Condensation creeps down the glass.
Ice slowly disappearing,
Turning my bright yellow drink cloudy.
Birds fly above me in a perfect arrow.
Flies buzz in my ear
While bees pollinate the petunias
I hear the laughter of children in the distance.
The pool is the color of the bright blue sky,
The light breeze creating wave.
It's hard to read with the glare of the sun,
but as long as the sun is hot,
and my lemonade ...
