It’s time for the Weekly Unplugged Project from Mom Unplugged. This week the focus was on Haiku. Though we didn’t create any Haiku, we did create some very meaningful poetry. This week being Veterans Week, the girls created poetry together with artwork as an expression of appreciation for our Veterans who served our country. Their contributions and many others from our homeschool community are part of our Remembrance Day display and can be viewed at Hillside Mall this week.
My youngest daughter (age:8) created an acrostic poem .
On the ground
Yard of Poppies
My oldest dd (age: 10) created a quatrain:
Sorrow and Victory
Muddy men crawl, on the ground in the breeze,
Slipping and sliding on their knees.
The men who fought were very brave,
They fought for our land their lives they gave.
They fought for Canada, our sweet homeland.
They would never give up, they would always stand.
They would fight in the light,
or they would fight ’til night.
The sweat on their brow was streaked with mud,
They wanted to win, so they paid with their blood.
On the shore before dawn, their foes they fought,
The victory was won, their freedom was bought.
