Today we are featuring Inklings Book Contest 2020 finalist, Sriaditi Yellamraju! Sriaditi finished 6th grade this past school year. The poem she submitted is called “Months of the Year.” Enjoy!
January we are back from break
Everyone’s mind is sort of awake
February is the month of love
All Valentines makes you fly like a dove
March is full of green
Luck & clovers and everything between
April is when it showers
Oh look so many flowers
May, the plants start to bloom
Rose, daisy and even mushroom
June weather gets hot
School is out so we now enjoy a lot
July, America’s proud
Fireworks start and burst out loud
August school begins
Brand new classroom, you got to jump in
September might be boring
The sounds of the winds and people snoring
October gives quite the scare
Princesses, devils and maybe a bear
November is the month to be thankful
All the food stuffs you a mouthful
December will be full of cheer and chilly
So many presents, don’t be so greedy
Every month has its own charm
Making the full year so cool, warm and calm!
