My Poems

This anthology is a collection of poems I chose from the Language of Literature Book, some poems from a book of love poems I found at the library, and a few poems of my own. Most of these poems interest me, but some I just put on here to get credit.

A Summer Love Poem By Nikki Giovanni

clouds float by on a summer sky
i hop scotch over to you
rainbows arch from ground to gold
i climb over to you
thunder grumbles
lightning tumbles
and i bounce over to you
sun beams and catches me
smiling over to you

From: Love Poems

Love Is By Nikki Giovanni

Some people forget that love is
tucking you in and kissing you "Good Night"
no matter how young or old you are

Some people don't remember that love is
listening and laughing and asking questions
no matter what your age

Few recognize that love is
commitment responsibility no fun at all

Love is
You and Me

From ; Love Poems
by Nikki Giovanni

And I Have You By Nikki Giovanni

Rain has drops Sun has shine
Moon has beams That make you mine

Rivers have banks Sands for shores
Hearts have heartbeats That make me yours

Needles have eyes Though pins may prick
Elmer has glue To make things stick

WInter has Spring Stockings feet
Pepper has mint To make it sweet

Teachers have lessons Soup du jour
Lawyers sue bad folks Doctors care

All and all this much is true
You have me And I have you

My Dad

My Dad is always there for me,
He sometimes doesnt think I see
He has been there since my birth,
I know he is the best father on this Earth.
I could never live without his love,
I thank God for this gift from above.

Basketball is what I play,
I would never dream of taking ballet.
My favorite colors are orange and pink,
Even though that is not the color of my sink.
I am seventeen years old,
but I'm not as old as mold.
I'm getting really cold.

By Hillary Renker.
THank you, very much. Thank You.

To you

I wanted you to have the perfect birthday,
So I tried to find a present that would make it that way,
I searched in everyplace I knew,
But nothing I found was good enough for you.
