When composing my poem I first thought of who I was going to write about. I chose one of my best friends Sophia. Next, I started brainstorming and wrote out all my ideas. Once I was done thinking of ideas and topics I then picked which ideas I was going to use in my poem. Then I began to write my poem. I was most surprised by once I completed writing the first two lines, all the other lines seemed to come. The challenge for me was just trying to start out the beginning and what I was going to title my poem. I think my poem turned out better then what I was originally planing.
The Wise Friend
Wisdom is a treasure,
You better believe it.
Only those named Sophia,
Are lucky to see it.
With her wise calming words,
She will whisk you away.
Her crystal blue eyes light up about the day,
She will help others see life in a whole new way.
Her blonde hair was just like Rapunzel’s,
It flowed in the wind but always tied up like a pretzel.
A giving heart so big,
Even a kingdom wouldn’t fill it.
She sings a sweet melody in Carnegie Hall,
Along with the birds who sing along.
Put yourself first I would tell her,
You’re personality is stellar.
