Poetry - 9th Grade ELA: Ode



Ode To Being Five (Children) - Poem by C.J. Heck

I made a paper Valentine

all red and edged with lace.

And on my paper Valentine,

I drew a pretty face.

I painted on two big blue eyes

and then a great big grin

and knew it wouldn't be complete

without a dimpled chin.

I love you, paper valentine,

and just between us two,

I hope someday when I grow up

I'll look as sweet as you.

What is an Ode?
