• "Simile" Poem
     
    Black as words on printed pages.
    Sad like tigers locked in cages.
    Long as thread unrolled from spools.
    Straight like legs on wooden stools. 
    Quiet as a school at night .
    Happy like a bird in flight.
    Tight as fuzzy skin on peaches.
    White like dunes of sand on beaches.
    Cold as scoops of frozen peas.
    Fun like writing similes.
