on Seventh Grade
These verses were influenced by a piece of poetry by Li Bo, a popular 8th Century Chinese poet. Seventh graders were inspired by the views outside their bedroom windows. The resulting poems were simple, yet reflective and thoughtful.

Shining through my window, the bright lights catch my eye.
It shines upon the cars onto my line of sight.
My eyes drift to one of the many lights in the buildings.
I hope that they have a good night as well.
By Mikaela Vital
A gentle breeze blows by.
House lights are off there as I lie.
I lift my body to stare at the clear sky.
I lean on my bed letting out a deep sigh to think about how time passes by.
Night Time Lights
by Jasmine Pili
The bright lights from the city ahead shimmer
The leaves from the bushes rustle from the wind
I look up and see the moon shining brightly
I look up and see stars twinkling in the sky
