Grade 5


My Hopeful Meaning of Home.

There is a difference between a home and a house,
Just like in between a rat and a mouse.

A house can help you stay dry and warm,
but a home can help you stay safe in a storm.

A home is like mud to a worm,
because that worm needs mud to squirm.

To me a home is a family,
who will help you when you hurt your knee.

You have a family for you to keep,
even if they have fallen asleep.

You will always have them to remember,
just like on the 11th of November.

I hope you’ve learned what home means to me,
and I hope someone is there when you hurt your knee!
