christy tanksley Poems
Mrs. Bass's 8th Grade Language Arts Clas...
Welcome,8th grade, to this class, I teach Language Arts because I'm Mrs. Bass. Pick a desk and have a seat,
Imagine all the things that time has to measure, the simple things that count and the hard things we treasure.
Things that are great things that are neat, are the things in life that make our lives complete.
I woke up this morning with an ache in my head, And it hurt so bad till I thought I was dead.
My Grandma was someone special Who was kind, sweet, and smart; Who had love for everyone, and was always pure of heart.
Imagine all the things
that time has to measure,
the simple things that count
and the hard things we treasure.
Imagine that you were a tree
alone in the park,
and the only thing they notice
is the owl after dark.
