My Favorites by Daeira

My Favorite color is Dark Blue.

Dark Blue, like the sky when night falls,

Dark Blue, like the ocean after rain,

Dark Blue, like the rain when it falls.

My Favorite place is Egio,

Where green grows and bugs fly.

Where village people live in peace and quiet.

When winter comes, families cuddle until summer comes again.

My Favorite food is cake.

Sweet chocolate goodness!

One bite and chocolate flows!

The smell of chocolate coming through the window,

The sight of my mother serving the sweet chocolate goodness.

My Favorite pets are cats.

Soft fluffy cats,

The small heads rise to my hand.

The sound of purring from the cat’s throat.

The majestic gold eyes sparkling at night!

FAVORITES POEM by Juliette

My favourite colour is lilac.
When I was five years old,
I saw lilac flowers growing on a bush.
They were so beautiful.
The colour was lovely,
And the flowers felt so soft,
Like velvet.

My favourite places are fun parks.
Why?
Because there so enjoyable, so outstanding.
I love the breeze I feel
When I’m on roller coasters,
With the wind rushing through my hair
And the delight while eating
Ice-cream!

My favourite sound
Is the sound of the breeze,
When it rustles the trees.
It makes a lovely sweet sound
That reminds me of the same rustling
While opening presents on
Christmas day.

My favourite smell is the smell of candy.
It’s so sweet, so tasty
When it’s in my mouth.
The candy dissolves
And all the flavour and sweetness
Comes out.
