The destruction of Pompeii

A mighty city was Pompeii,
It stood strong until one fateful day.
A huge booming noise that caused a fuss
came from Mount Vesuvius.

Crashing down came the rooftops' slates,
the house's cups and the house's plates,
but shortly after came a rumbling,
and down from the mountain, ash and lava came tumbling.

It was a maelstrom of death, destruction and pain,
any efforts to stop it were all in vain.

It was as if Vulcan himself was present that day...
but this destruction preserved the city in a spectacular way.
The city taught us so much about Rome,
more than any book or any tome.

Wasp in the Classroom

By Alexander Byrne

A wasp flew into my classroom today, and everyone's sanity went away.

They screamed, they wailed, And all their arms flailed! They jumped, they bumped, and someone's toe got stumped. The entire class was going berserk, and Miss couldn't get us to do any work.

And that's the day a wasp flew into our classroom, and we got in so much trouble, we all met our doom!

The Autumn Winds

By Alexander Byrne

The autumn winds, oh they have come. Bid summer ado, for it is done.

The leaves of green have turned to gold, the breeze rustles through them, oh, it is cold.

You hear the howling of the wind, like the lovely whistling of wood-wind.

The light draft shudders your timber door, but this won't last forevermore.

Soon it will be winter, as it is told; This is a notion not too bold. The autumn winds will soon feel old, as Christmas nearens, as foretold. Then, winter too will also end.

But a thing called joy will always attend.

A Haiku style poem

By Alexander Byrne

The octopus slinks,
and he squeezes through the net,
swiftly escaping.

HOLDING ON TO YOUR HAND

ALL MY LIFE I HAVE BEEN SEARCHING FOR SOMEBODY
BUT I CAN’T FIGURE OUT WHO
BUT THEN I SAW YOU STANDING THERE
YOU GAVE ME THAT BRLLIANT BLUE EYE STARE
AND NOW I FEEL LIKE
HOLDING ON TO YOUR HAND
HOLDING ON TO YOUR HAND
HOLDING ON TO YOUR HAND
FOREVER WHEREVER
WE ARE WHEREVER WE’LL BE WE’LL BE
WE ALWAYS BE
RIGHT BY EACHOTHER
ME AND YOU .
