Grade 5



Home is way more than just walls and a roof

Home smells like 3 wick candles in the


My Mom’s perfume on her neck

And pretty flowers across the deck

Home feels like

Soft blankets in my bed

A warm hug from my family

And fuzzy hats on my head

Home looks like

Proud smiles that last awhile

Or maybe sad

But we realize it will be okay

Not bad

Home sounds like

Meat sizzling on the frying pan

Cars starting out to work

And cool air from the fan

Home tastes like

Fresh baked cookies out of the oven

A big feast all done

Or a little meal for one


Everyone should have a home
