Brooklyn Bridge Poem
by Arya, 10, Ridge Road Elementary School, USA
The Great East River Bridge
….John Augustus Roebling designed
Stood up high and tall,
….Held together by iron strings confined
Connecting Manhattan to Brooklyn,
….While in the river swim the fins
As the towers touched the sky,
….The birds soar and fly
The traffic of cars, vans, and buses move on,
….As the conversations on the walkway carry on
In the morning the bridge is a road to success
….At night it takes us home to rest!

Windy Nights by Robert Louis Stevenson
Whenever the wind is high,
All night long in the dark and wet,
A man goes riding by.
Late in the night when the fires are out,
Why does he gallop and gallop about?
And ships are tossed at sea,
By, on the highway, low and loud,
By at the gallop goes he.
By at the gallop he goes, and then
By he comes back at the gallop again.

THE WIND HAS SUCH A RAINY SOUND by Christina Rossetti
The wind has such a rainy sound
Moaning through the town,
The sea has such a windy sound,
Will the ships go down?
The apples in the orchard
Tumble from their tree.
Oh will the ships go down, go down,
In the windy sea?
