Brownies
Delicious choc’ late
Savoring every last bite
Till there is nothing
Cookies
With oatmeal is best
Almost never without chips
Chocolate, that is
Hellodollie
Grahams, then the butter,
Chocolate and butterscotch
Coconut, walnuts
Pie
Crumbly and flakey
Served warm with real cold ice cream
Sauce on the inside
Family
Always there for you
Criticizing every move
Fun to be around
Kaleidoscope
Swirling and twirling
Many different colors
So symmetrical
Drums
Toms, bass, cymbals, snare
Know the beat to get the song
Don’t forget the fills
Camping
In the wilderness
Only sleeping bags and tents
Hopefully no bears
Tent
Want-to-be real house
But only temporary
Just a plain shelter
Clouds
Too overbearing
Full of themselves and puffy
But also pleasant
Rain
Constantly falling
Always down on your parades
Oh so very wet


Hail
The angry raindrops
Rough, and unavoidable
Pestilent, harmful
Snow
White, soft, and puffy
Soft side of precip’tation
Pure, and tons of fun
Sunny
So extremely hot
But lots of fun is waiting
With water, is best
Washington
Pretty, Mountainous
Oft raining, but not always
Sure fun to be had
Hiking
Step by step, upwards,
So tiring, and exhausting,
Worth it in the end
Beach
Sometimes full of rocks
Sometimes it’s full of driftwood
But always pretty
Ocean
Lots of turbulence
Yet can also be so calm
Wavy and white-capped
Jump
Water is far down
Take a deep breath, get ready
Jump, and fall, and splash
Trees
Got to get to top
Never stop climbing upwards
Till you reach the top
