The trill of a flute, clear and sweet,
twittering like a bird song.
The boom-boom of a drum,
loud and solemn like the stomp of an elephant.
The whine of a saxophone, low and drawn out,
just like the cry of a monkey.
The tune of a clarinet, beautiful and regal,
playing like the calls of the creatures.
The orchestra is a forest.
The forest is an orchestra.
The trill of a bird’s song, clear and sweet,
twittering like a flute.
The boom-boom of an elephant stomp,
loud and solemn like the bang of a drum.
The cry of a monkey, low and drawn out,
just like the whine of a saxphone.
The calls of the creatures, beautiful and regal,
playing like the tune of a clarinet.
The forest is an orchestra.
The orchestra is a forest.

I wrote this in sixth grade, but I thought it was pretty good for a sixth grader. Let me know what you think of it, please!
