The boys and girls in the Mercy School have been busy over the past number of
days writing their valentine poems with an environmental theme. Here are a
sample of some of the winning verses.
Ms Shannons 6th
Roses are red, the sky is blue
Love the planet because it loves you too.
Lush greenlands, forests and lakes,
They all need protection, lets keep them safe
Look outside, see the trees,
Watch the flowers in the breeze,
Things won’t be like this in a year or two,
If polluting the land is all we do!
Mr Kings 6th Class
The grass is green
the ocean is blue
Roses and romance
is what I’ll give you
Trees and leaves
water and fire
my love for you will never expire
We’ll walk on Wednesday
We’ll save energy and recycle
You’ll meet my mum and dad
and my brother Michael
If you’ll stay green with me
save water and trees
my love for you
will stay as strong
as the seas.
Ms Flynns Junior Infants
Roses are red
Water is blue
Push the green button
when you go to the loo!
Ms Griffins First Class
Roses are red
Violets are blue
I say to the Earth
I love you!
Ms Sheridans Second Class
Walk on Wednesday or every day
Keep the rubbish all away
but don’t forget to turn off the lights
save the power even on Valentines Day!
Ms Englishs Second Class
Roses are red,
water is blue
our school is cool and yours could be too.
You can do this, that talk and talk
but let me tell you its better to walk.
I feel pride because I’ve did the park and stride.
I do a lot less talking and a lot more walking.
Now I’m never late
I’m always first at the school gate!
