Thinking About the Botanical Garden

Amelia Alamgir, Grade 1, 826NYC
This poem uses repetition and sensory details to describe a trip to the botanical garden.

I like the chrysanthemums.
I like the daisies.
I like the sunflowers.
I like the violets.
The chrysanthemums were yellow.
The daisies were white
with brown in the inside.
The sunflowers were very very very tall.
It was windy so the violets swayed.
We went to the cafe. We had treats and coffee.
The coffee was disgusting!
It was very very fun!
It smells good.
