My Garden

Daylight is leaving,

My garden is turning dull again.

A nightingale sings,

Putting my sister to sleep

Under the iridescent moonlight.

Sadness and Joy

I was in the lead,

Dreaming of the gold medal.

Suddenly I screamed,

And tripped over a pebble.

Sadly, I lost fair and square.


My birthday was dull,

Nobody even wished me.

All the lights went off.

Then someone brought out a cake-

A surprise party for me!
