Things That Cannot Be Captured

A poem by a 3rd Grade Student

Germs. They’re all over even when your clean.
Looking at the sunrays on a nice day. Large
colorless rings in the water. The colorful
rainbow that appears in the sky. My heart that I
use to show my love. The stars in the sky at
night. The birds in the sky. A planet in outer
space. An alien trying to take over the world.

– By Brooklyn, a 3rd Grade Student
