Chute 1


 We looked we saw we starred  (a)

  My dad and I were scared(a)

  Chute 1 was not so safe(b)

  I found my line to take(C)


I strapped in to my ski (d)

I picked my line to flee  (d)

And through the snow I went (e)

That sound that feeling was there (f)


My ski carved left  and right  (g)

 for my turns were very tight (g)

I hit a bunch of moguls  (h)

It’s over and all is well (I )


The rest was flat with pow (j)

I have done it but how (j)

I did it with strong focus  (k)

And with a tad of hocus pocus (k)




Ok, these are way harder than dimeter poems. I think it is because in most sentences you don’t use and odd number of beats. Anyways this took me an hour and. Half and I still think I could spend another 2 hours improving it. I’m excited to write more poems like this and I think this type of writing will help me in the future.

Jack Bretl poems


Ml I lay (a)

 Up on the hill(b)

Where Im today (a)

With tumps to fill(b)


 There I see   c)

An old big pump (d)

This is my key  (c)

Which shall fill my tump(d)





This poem is a true story. It tells the story of my 2 friends and I looking for the water fountain at a camp site this summer. We ended up finding the water next to a great big fern. The water pump was old and slow but the water as cold and fresh coming straight from a river. This poem portrays what happened that day in great detail and I hope you liked it.







into thin air (a)

I fly so high (b)

With little care(a)

I fly so high(b)


The white mountains(c)

I see below(d)

 the white fountains(c)

Drop of  white snow(d)




This is also a true story. This is the story of when I flew out to the Rockies in Colorado. The mountains were so Beautiful covered with the snow that I felt like a fountain sprayed onto them. This was a very fun story to tell and I hope you liked the poem.
