From Poems by Benny for a fifth grade English class project in May 2003, age 11.
This book is dedicated to my mom who has loved and taken care of me for all of my life she has taught me to love others and to always tell the truth. When I am troubled or worried she always listens to what I have to say. The most important thing she has taught me is to do my best and to try until I succeed.
An acrostic poem is written by taking a word and using each letter in that word to begin a different line in a poem.
I LOVE YOU
In good times or bad,
Like when I'm mad,
Only you can help me to be glad!
Very kind you speak, not
Even sounding bleak.
You solve my problem!
On my bed, with my head in my hand, you always
Benny gave me this precious book of poems for Mother's Day four years ago. This is one of my favorites. I'm sure you can understand why. :)
