I just started today taking two of my girls to a poetry class offered through our homeschool group. It's the kind of class geared to "free verse" type poetry not meter, rhyme or scanning. The following are two poems my 10 year old wrote during class today. The theme was to pick a color and write a poem about it.

Pink is my favorite color
It brightens the sunset
And hot pink burns
Like fire and
Makes it bright and beatiful
Around me.

Black is dark and scary
You can't see anything
It haunts you in the dark
But sometimes it's bright
Like the night sky.
