Olivia Slemmermann Poems
April Fools' Day It Is!
Its origins are uncertain A celebration most certain. At the turn of the seasons The vernal equinox the reason
Shape Poetry - My Tears
My tears Soaked my pillow last night
Haiku Poetry - Lightning Strikes
An Acrostic Poem - Evening Shadows
Evening shadows brings 'em out to feed Verily, in herds mighty raised Elephants aplenty amongst the reeds! Nightly yonder they traverse crazed,
Time stood still
Fragrant nutmeg and acorns Gold dust and sweet corn Emerald and sapphire blooms Where have they all gone
stealthily moving in the marsh, crocodile! herds of animals thirstily they drink.
But Where Are The Bees
Spring is in the air Birds chirping everywhere But, where are the bees Are they all frozen in their hives?
Ride Up A Rainbow
On a bright sunny morn, She climbed up on high, Sat on a rainbow to watch the world go by.
The Online Scammer
Aha! I know your face is black, not white Even though you pretend to be so uptight No camera you said to show your face Let alone to view your living space
Will You Still Want Me the Way I Am
Silken robes and fancy gowns, Bright rubies and gold have I none Fame or great name I do not have All I bring is my guileless reliance
My Love Has Gone
My love has gone I know not where When I call his phone I know he’s there Why won’t he answer might I ask Just cuts me off without a word
A Villanelle - Oh My Love!
All I want is your close embrace Feel of your fingers through my hair It feels so good, my heart will race;
The Jewels In The Crown
What would I have done without eyes No way to gaze at, or scrutinize
The Merry Pirate
Living a life on watery adventure The pirate revels upon the roughest sea Playground and battling ground for treasure The loot divided of battles bloodily fought free

April Fools' Day It Is!
Its origins are uncertain
A celebration most certain.
At the turn of the seasons
The vernal equinox the reason
In medieval European regions
The Feast of Annunciation,
The Romans and Hindus,
Were free to choose
The first day of April a cultural celebration
Dawn the New Year by ancient tradition.
Fixed now by popular demand
New calendar the reason command
Thus belief it stems the creation
Of the Gregorian Calendar, meant organization
New Year, at the beginning of April was gone
In its place a new date was set upon
By Pope Gregory XIII in ...
