Briskly cold mornings

Colours changing in gullies

Leaves float in breeze

Flowing through the air.

Dazzling colours within trees.

Time fades to winter.

Starry dark night sky

Beautiful starry lights in sky

Lighting the dark sky

The Ranger

Looks over the town.

He puts criminals in jail.

He is protective.

Summer Days

Sun rising early

Having fun while you’re boating.

Lotion on my burns

Sun Rises

Golden glow arose.

Sun rises majestically.

Smiling with my friends.

The Roar

Big red stags roaring

The sound of antlers clashing

Stags chasing their hinds

By Logan Te Huia

Beautiful night

Big bright moon blanket of stars

Hooting of the owls.

Opening of life

Covered by crimson garments

Song of sweet clean love

Animals grazing

Jumping, galloping, dreaming

In the glazing sun

Tall as a giraffe

Poking and pointing at me

Leaves drifting away

The lake’s breeze

A swift breeze passing,

The deep blue water dancing

In the starry night.

Racing down windows

Water sprinkles from the sky

Sliding in the mud

Winter Days

Snow falls from the sky

Covering the mountain tops

Snowmen everywhere

By Maddi Cooper


Berries of light crimson,leaves of forest green,covered up in christmas snow,like no ones ever seen.Spikes like sewing needles,Berries like bouncy balls,This is the kind of plant you'd use to deck the halls.I begin with an H,and end with a Y.I'm a great christmas symbol,soon you'll see why.My bush creates great hedges, an amazing plant I'll be,My biggest fans are Robins,I'm Holly can't you see.
