McCamey Middle School Sixth Grade

Ms. Hall's Sixth Grade Language Arts Class
McCamey Middle School
McCamey, Texas
A wonderful thing happened at My Word Wizard (MWW) in September of 2011. We began to receive an amazing collection of poems from a small town in Texas called McCamey. We soon learned that the poems emanated from McCamey Middle School, and were written by a group of highly talented young poets in Ms. Hall's 6th Grade Language Arts class.

These budding writers were the pioneers of a collaborative effort between McCamey and MWW that continues to this day.  They were also the first poets at McCamey to be awarded the prestigious My Word Wizard Award for Excellence in Writing. The honor was subsequently bestowed on the poets of Ms. Hall's 5th grade Language Arts class.  An equally talented group.

Our editorial team has culled through the voluminous library of McCamey 6th grade poems and we are proud to bring you a superb selection of their works. 

We encourage all young writers to take inspiration from your peers in McCamey, Texas.

Hair, dark like the midnight skies,
Old, like a rock under the ground,
But fast, as a rabbit.
He's my Chonco.
He is like food and water to me.
That's how much I love him.

They run as fast as a car.
They live free and run to live.
They are beautiful.
The Mustang's coat is brighter than gold.
Its black hair is darker than a cave.

All kinds of people play in the park,
eating peanuts and pork rinds,
as they go down the Pinesaurus slide,
and climb pine trees peacefully,
as people try to scare them away.

There once lived a boy who found a chest,
And what was inside was anyone’s guess.
When he opened it, guess what came out?
An unknown creature who began to shout.

He said, "Get outta here!"
Then the boy jumped up in fear.
The creature was in a whole chest of fruit loops,
And they ain't going anywhere,
trust me you "old coops."

When the boy left screaming,
The creature fell asleep and began dreaming.

Roses are red, violets are blue.
My mom said,"Well good for you!"
I want a cake,
but my mom won't bake.
She says, "You're too fat."
I say, "I want a cat."
she said,"If you want a pet, I'll get you a bat."
"Fine," I said.
Then she went to bed.
Then I got sad,
and she got mad.
"Fine, I'll get you a cat."
Then I went to chat.
I'm so happy.
My mom said I'm too yappy.
Yes, I'm getting a cat.
Thank God it's not a bat!

The kid was as big as a giant!
The other kid was as small as an ant!
But they were both best friends forever.
One day they decided to go on a trip
they travelled to a place
that was miles away.
At the end of the road was a wizard
Who made them the same size
And they were forever happy.

The bear bought
a big brown bag
from the bear store,
and ran back home
to the big brown cave,
and showed every brown bear in the bear world
just what was in
that big brown bag

MY mom had breast cancer.
She is tough.
She fought like a girl.
Which is really tough.
My mom is my inspiration,
because nothing can break her.
I love her a lot,
so much that nothing
can compare with her.

I see a box, and it has locks.
I wonder what's in it.
I look for the key and what do I see?
A key taped underneath it!
I grab the key, and open the box.
When I see it,
I jump out of my socks!
It is the scariest creature I've ever seen!
Oh, and it really looks mean!
Run for your life!!!

Deep beautiful valley.

Her hair is like dark, dark chocolate.
She has teeth like a demon.
Her ears pop up like horns.
She bites everyone she finds, everyday,
unless she gets food.
Sometimes she bites me for fun!
She is mad and bad as the devil.

My 3 Sisters are stuck by my side!
It's the greatest thing God gave me this year!
Without them I would be a loner!
But I have them with me all the time!
They are a four leaf clover
you could never find them!
Their names are Rya Deleon, Viviana Diaz & Kimberly Cavozos!
I Love them!
Everyone should be GLAD they have
brothers or sisters or even both,
by their side!!

My brother fell and hit his head.
Boom! Boom!

And he landed in a puddle of water.
Splash! Splash!

And he got up and ran home as fast as he could.
Zoom! Zoom!

And when he got there he was mad
and went to his room.
Stomp! Stomp!

And he went back outside and it started raining
he got even madder.
Drip! Drip!

he had bad luck that day,
but finally it was over and he got hungry.
Munch! Munch!

Then, he went to bed.
Zzzzzzz! Zzzzzzzz!

Sold in Amarillo

Or a blouse on a girl

I had a grandma that I loved.
I loved her a whole lot.
I can't stand being away from her.
Her name was Alicia,
and we always spent time together.
I miss her so much!
She passed, and I couldn't believe my eyes.
I cried my eyes out!
I pray for her every night.
She wasn't just my grandma, she was more.
She was like a sister, mother, and best friend.
When I think of her, I cry inside and out.
She was a good person.
She was nice, caring, and thoughtful.
She was always sick, and always in the hospital.
Now she's up there with the angels and the Lord.
I love you Grandma, and I always will.
I miss you!

I have a LIFE that is so strange and wonderful.
I have two BEST friends that stick with me wherever I go.
I know I can I trust them with anything.
I might have fights with them, but still I LOVE THEM!!!
I have two true sisters named ''Rya'' & ''Mariel''.
I have had troubles here and there,
and they have helped me work through them
Especially with them by my side
