Samantha’s Poetry


Snikers is a good cat.
She hides her toys
so we can find them.
Snikers loves to be held
and to snuggle.
She is so much fun.
I love her a lot.
She is my responsibility.

My Life is Beautiful

My life is beautiful because
I go to camp
and do a lot of fun stuff.
My life is beautiful because
I have Grandma and Grandpa
in my life.
My life is beautiful because
I have learned a lot at
Life Learning Center.


Rosie is beautiful.
She has soft fur and
is lovable.
She loves to snuggle.
She just goes with the flow
all the time.
Rosie is a dog.

Rosie and Bella

Rosie and Bella are friends.
Rosie likes her bed.
Bella likes to look out the window.
Rosie is a dog.
Bella is a cat.
I like to take Rosie for walks.
I like to pet Bella’s soft fur.
Rosie is the nicest dog….
Bella isn’t nice sometimes.
Rosie and Bella sleep with my mom.
I just love them so much!
