Each of the following poems was written by 4 people. Each participant was asked to write their thoughts on water. The four thoughts were then combined into one poem. This is an excellent classroom activity.


Pools of habitat cold and clear

serene, clear, liquid

water cycle…equals…life cycle

serene sticky pond scum

stream 2Slipping from the clouds

the water flows serenely

flowing, running, leaping splashing every moving and always returning

fluid drips flowing serenely

Our world is made up of mostly waterflowing water

the serene creek flows continuously

sticky wet pond scum flows

cycling through plants, animals, and the world make us one
