Welcome to MyStoriesAndPoems.com

 

...where children turn budding poems into flowering perfection, plus, learn to store, safely view, and share precious writing, critiques, and poetry pages. All of this and more is easily accomplished using MSAP's innovative poetry-writing and poetry collecting techniques. Site master and program creator, R. Renée Bembry, has taught many children to write and learn from poetry. Girls and boys alike who thought they could not write, or did not think they had an interest in poetry, discovered the beauty and fun poetry brings and turned out wonderful poems.

 

 

OVERVIEWS

 

Poetry Workshops - MSAP Poetry-Writing Workshops are for classrooms, home-schoolers, Girl Scouts, Boy Scouts, and just about any kids' group or club including parties. MSAP workshops teach children how poetry can improve their reading and writing skills as they read stories and write poems. Workshop information is located on Educator's Page.

 

Poetry Contests - MSAP Poetry Contests let children match their poetry-writing skills with other children's skills. Competing against their peers incites children to work harder on improving their talent. Some contests include free poetry-writing critiques for submitted poems. Poetry contests take place in-class and online and are open to individual children, classes, and other public and private organizations.

Poetry Collections - MSAP Poetry Collections encourage children to read stories and poems and to write poems using methods that enable them to improve reading, comprehension, and writing skills. These skills transition from poetry writing into classroom/home-school writing improvement.

Start learning about MyStoriesAndPoems poetry-writing by reading my poems about dolphins. The first poem is "Dolphin"

and the rewrite is "Dolphin-Motion Sick". After reading these poems, check out "Getting Started for Newbies" below and let

your child/children/class or troop begin their first poetry lesson for free.

 

 

"Dolphin" is the first draft

of this mammal inspired poem based on a true story.

 

"Dolphin-Motion Sick" is

the revised poem.

 

The revised poem is the type of poetry-writing author R. Renée Bembry teaches children to develop.

 

Comparing the poems side-by-side makes it easy to explore the author's ability to formulate and to improve poetry.

 

MSAP focuses on rhyming poems for a variety of reasons.

Dolphin

Dolphin - Motion Sick

By R. Renée Bembry

AKA Silly Mommy

By R. Renée Bembry

AKA Silly Mommy

I came to see the dolphin

 

   I came to see their tricks

 

I came to watch their smooth bods

 

Glide through water so slick

   

But I missed all the dolphin

 

And I missed all their tricks

 

For while they were performing

 

I got motion sick

 Would you like to see

your poem about a

dolphin on this website?

If yes, submit it HERE.

 

Please read poetry rules

HERE before submitting

your poem.

"In about an hour,"

Called the captain

of the ship.

 "We're likely to spot dolphin

 On this Catalina trip. 

So hop aboard.

 And take a seat.

This dolphin sight

Cannot be beat.”

 

An unexpected pleasure— 

 I thought

Heading for the deck.

Turning on my camera

 Bat-te-ry usage I check.

 

Meter displays

I have full charge

To film dolphin

 From this here barge.

I sit down across from the rail;

Share the cool breeze that blows the sail.

 

I envision blue water

Spouting from dolphin heads.

I envisage their bodies;

Pretend they’re eating squids.

 

Their slick

Gray torsos nosedive.

Then, leap out of the sea—

Way high above the water

As joyous as can be.

 

“All aboard,” calls a shipmate

“It’s time for us to sail.”

The ship is prepared to go 

 Down to the last detail.

I sit back and I notice

 A churning in my gut.

 I eat four saltine crackers

 To soothe this nausea.

  

Stretching across the bench as

 Boat sails across the sea

 I give in to the sickness

 That's enervating me.

 I vomit all my crackers.

 Then upchuck all my tea.

 And all the food I’d eaten

 Before quarter passed three.

 

 In a short moment later

 I hear shouts.

 I hear screams. 

Contented voices crying

 ‘Bout porpoises they’d seen.

 While I lay on the bench in

 A nauseating bout,

 “Look at that baby pup!” I

 Hear tiny tots cry out.

  

I could not see the dolphin.

 I could not see their tricks.

 I could not watch their Smooth bods

 Gliding through water slick.

 

Yes, I missed all the dolphin.

 And I missed all their tricks.

 For while they were performing—

 I lay down motion sick!
