a fresh poem by some of Mrs. Knappe’s 5th graders at Ellwood School in Goleta

Ladybugs all look the same,
But are they?
They love eating aphids,
some more than others.
Green is everywhere,
giving us the freshest air.
Fresh food is everywhere,
causing visitors to stare.
Oranges not yet sweet
if we pick them too early.
No more scurvy to make our minds CURVY.
Succulents so dry and pretty,
never the same.
The tiny oak, not yet mighty,
but it will get there!
