My Sister’s Sleep Mask
In the night as she rests her head
Goes away into a far land
With that mask in her place
One night not long ago
I put it on to see what it would show
Very flat, warm, and safe
I go away to that place
I see green grass, tall trees
And a black, dark forest with loud crows
A roaring waterfall with wolves at its side
I see and eagle and watch it glide
I see a field of bunnies and deer
I watch a bear and beaver, too.
Fish swimming in a pond.
It’s almost time to go.
I am spinning fast round and round.
I land in my room on the ground.
The Green Water
We Will Rock You
Chapter One - Legs
There once was a boy named Harry. He was 20 years old and he got a job as a teacher at Pine Richland School District. One day he was walking to work and saw some of the water by the Hotel was green. Harry touched the water, and then he felt sick. To try and feel better, he fell asleep on the side wall. While sleeping he fell into the green water. When he woke up, he had five legs! He got out of the water and found a phone. He called the school principal and said that he could not come to school ever again. He didn’t want to show the world what he looked like, so he stayed in the green water.
Chapter Two - A New Life
Harry started swimming back and forth trying to get used to have three new legs. He dove under water whenever a person came walking down the street. Harry found a raw fish to eat and he drank the green water. It was a little gross, but that is what Harry had to do to survive. He found goggles that someone had dropped into the water. After a couple of hours in the green water, Harry was faster in the water than a jet airplane could fly!
Chapter Three - Good News and Bad News
Harry was starting to get lonely. He really wanted to make friends with a fish that was swimming around. The fish was scared of Harry and swam away. Harry was about to tell someone to jump in with him when SPLASH! A girl with wavy pink hair and blue eyes fell into the water. She was asleep like Harry had been when he fell in. She started forming new legs like Harry. At the same time Harry was forming more legs! After she got her fifth leg, Harry got his tenth leg. Harry shook the girl and she woke up. She asked, “Who are you?” She had the sweetest voice Harry had ever heard. “Harry,” Harry answered. “Mine is Lily,” said the girl.
Chapter Four- The Baby
Harry fell in love with Lily. “You have ten legs and I have five legs!” said Lily. He explained to her that, “the water gives you legs.” Harry took out a ring. “Do you want to marry me?” asked Harry. “I guess so. You are the only person I will see.” said Lily. So, they got married and had a little girl with dirty blond hair, blue eyes and 2 legs.
One night I was playing softball at 6:00. I got there at 5:30 so I could practice. I was the second one there. Lindsy was first. We were playing at Pine Richland, our home field. We threw a little. The first person from the other team came. We were going to play Avenworth. We throw just a little more, and then it was time to play. We were home so we played the field first. I was third base. I got no outs. Soon there were five runs. Time to go in. I was fourth up. I hit the ball. I didn’t get out. I didn’t get out all game! We got five runs! I was third again. One out at third. One run that time. I did not bat. I was left field that inning. Wow talk about left side games. I stood still and no ball came to me. Now here is when the title comes into play. For some reason we sang a song all batting time called we will rock you. It was so fun. I can not say the song because there is a replacement in there. For a bad word. After singing we played the field for the last time. I was left field. The final score for the other team was 16. We sang we will rock you again. The final score was 9-16. We LOST. I had so much fun.
