Federico Poems 2011

Hunting in the night

The dark doesn't alternate his sight

Rodents flee at their vision

To not end in a collision


The claws that catch! 

The jaws that bite!

To not make it scratch

Do not give him a fright



By Federico Luchetti

Grade 5G

Ambrit Rome International School


Furry and green

Your smell is so keen

Long I have waited

To savor this fava bean


With cheese you're a delight

Alone you're a fright

Now it's time to harvest

I can't wait to take a bite


I can tell you one thing,

I feel like flying

As I taste the fava bean

I choke on it and now I'm dying 



Excellent friend








I see a squirrel

I walk to him
Me too
I run, run, run, 
I got the squirrel!
Oh, hi
Where squirrel?



 (Inspired by Robert Frost)

I'm going out to have recess
I'll be with you all half-hour
Don't waste time to wear a pretty dress
It won't be long-You come too

We'll talk and talk and talk
Only if you come at recess

We'll hear the birds squawk

Aahhhh.... no stress


School Music

This school




of shouting

Up from the 



Stomping and 

Running around, 







Click, clack





Play the music:

School Music


This is just to say...

I have eaten

the sushi

that was 

in the fridge


And which 

you were probably





Forgive me 

they were so juicy,

so tasty

and so fishy


Lonely purple flower

poor lonely flower,

sitting between the green leaves

blowing in the wind



by Lewis Carroll


Twas brillig, and the slithy toves

Did gyre and gimble in the wabe:
All mimsy were the borogoves,
And the mome raths outgrabe.

'Beware the Jabberwock, my son!
The jaws that bite, the claws that catch!
Beware the Jubjub bird, and shun
The frumious Bandersnatch!'

He took his vorpal sword in hand:
Long time the manxome foe he sought --
So rested he by the Tumtum tree,
And stood a while in thought.

And, as in uffish thought he stood,
The Jabberwock, with eyes of flame,
Came whiffling through the tulgey wood,
And burbled as it came!

One two! One two! And through and through
The vorpal blade went snicker-snack!
He left it dead, and with its head
He went galumphing back.

'And hast thou slain the Jabberwock?
Come to my arms, my beamish boy!
Oh frabjous day! Callooh! Callay!'
He chortled in his joy.

'Twas brillig, and the slithy toves
Did gyre and gimble in the wabe:
All mimsy were the borogoves,
And the mome raths outgrabe. 


Response: I liked this poem because when I saw the movie "Alice in Wonderland" I saw how the Jabberwocky looked like, but this poem brought out another kind of image. It reminded me of the movie "Alice in Wonderland" because they included this poem in it. It made me feel excited because it's a fight between this man and the Jabberwocky, I even felt sorry for the Jabberwocky because he gets his head chopped off, poor Jabberwocky.

Response: I liked this poem because it goes through an alphabet of names of kids that all die. It doesn't remind me of anything (fortunately). It made me feel sorry for the kids that die, but you have to admit that it is a bit funny.

You need to work on your recess poem. check the rhyming pattern and you will need to add two lines in your second stanza.
