Grade 5

British Columbia


You are loved by your family in a home,
You can have pots, pans or a garden gnome.
You can share a room or have one to yourself,
Maybe you’ll have one thousand books on one shelf.
When you come home from school you’ll open the door,
You will see your mom mopping the floor.
When you sit down on the couch and turn on the TV,
Your dad will ask you if you want a freezie.
You can have one pet or none,
But without one you can still have fun.
In the morning you can put on some clothes,
And make eggs and bacon on the stove.
A home can be big or it can be small,
A home can be short or it can be tall.
But the warm feeling inside me
Is what I like most of all.
