By Ronan L.
Winter is white snow
It tastes like hot cocoa
It sounds like falling snow and yells from snowball fights
It smells like smooth crushed-up ice
It looks like a white blanket covering the land
It makes me feel cold and happy
A Wonder of the Jungle
By Alene A.
A blue macaw is a deep blue gem
Dashing through a maze of trees
It tastes like a fresh glass of lemonade
Swiftly sinking into my mouth
It sounds like the perfect morning
In a hot and humid tropical oasis
It smells like coconut trees as it soars through
The vast, open sky
It looks like an indigo sapphire
Darting through the wind
It makes me feel content as it flaps its delicate wings
By Anthony S.
Baseball is calm and relaxing
Baseball tastes like sweetness and victory
It sounds like the rough ball going into the brown glove
It smells like filthy dust and dirt
It looks like hundreds of fans cheering on the teams
It makes me feel a rush of energy on the field
By Eli S.
The rainforest is a wide mysterious place full of life
It tastes like brisk, cold wind soaring through my hair
It sounds like an animal kingdom
Singing their many songs
It smells like the day after a thunderstorm
It looks like a mammoth stretch of land
Teeming with wildlife
It makes me feel covered and protected
By Harper D.
A mountain is majestic
It tastes like a fresh pile of rocks
It sounds like birds chirping in the distance
It smells like fresh fertilizer
It looks like a gigantic snow cone
It makes me feel calm and fresh
A Snowy Christmas
By Jack S.
Christmas is snowy
It tastes like warm cookies fresh out of the oven
It sounds like Santa saying "Ho ho ho"
It smells like pine cones by the fire
It looks like snow falling from the blue sky
It makes me feel like the happiest kid in the world
