Mr. Brown’s Neighborhood

Writing 201: Poetry. I really do love this course. I love the freedom of the course, and how it stretches my mind. I have to try not to be cheesy, and make my poetry original. Today’s assignment continues in the path of great challenges.

Neighborhood. Ballad. Assonance.

Step outside to a warm, sunny day
Kids running to and fro
Shrieking and laughter. Fraggle Rock after
Inside for the lunch time show

Bike rides outside as cars whip past
You hope you don’t get hit
Kids day dream on the hilltop scene
Grass green and banana splits

Summer days and sunshine rays
This barbecue chicken is good!
Someone get this dog out the street
This is my neighborhood.

      Thanks!! I added because I love summer. But the kids usually are playing from sun up to sun down. I like that they are outside instead of having their faces buried in the TV.

    I enjoyed it. I think the ballad meter works well too!

      Thanks! I think that’s the musician in me. I made up some silly song in my head to make it work.
