Kyle’s Hiding

I have a cat
I know where I put it
I put it in the drawer
And then I hided my
And Tigers
In different places
The elephants were
Right next to the couch
I put the giraffes
In the cupboard
And the Tiger
In the drawer
And then I hided
My army men
Next to the T.V.
There’s only one more thing
To look for
It is a picture
I hided it under my bed

I'm so impressed that you are only six years old and already have a presence on a literary web site.

Listen to what people tell you and decide what things will help you write better.

I really liked this poem - I know it was your first.

The only thing I will say, is that "hided" is not a word. You might want to change that to "hid".

Keep up the good work!

Kyle Nice Job!!!
Very good job, this poem is great! I look forward to seeing more work from you. Thanks for posting!

welcome kyle
Welcome Kyle. Thanks for sharing your poem. I would have been proud if I could write like you at your age. I liked finding out all the good spots where you can hide your toys. I'll keep them in mind when I am hiding my own. "Hided" does seem right doesn't it, but that's how funny our language is. There are all these other words like "hid" that we use too. I'd leave this one just how it is so you can look back when you are older. Good work.

To everyone from Kyle
To everyone who typed to me:

Thank you that you read my poem. I was glad that you did. Will you read more of my poems? I have more, you know.

I was glad to read your notes to me and I liked it very much!

Smithy - I like that lizzard picture. I have geckos you know. They are really cool.

I think you should keep the word "hided". It describes the best way to hide something real good.

I used to have army men, too. As good as I hided them, my favorite ones would somehow disappear.

Your poem is really good. The way you list your special things and the interesting places you put them for safe keeping.

Make sure your cat doesn't get closed up in the drawer too long. I have a cat, too. He likes to sleep in the bathroom sink.

Thank you Demeter. You are very nice.

This is Kyle.

Gomarsoap - Hided
To Gomar,

This is Kyle. Does your cat really sleep in the sink? Does it like to get its own drink of water?

I know that some of my army men disappear, too. Paula always buys me more. Sometimes I find some when I am digging in the sand. Maybe you should look there.

Thank you that you read my poem.

My cat didn't stay in the drawer long, but it's okay anyway. It's not a real cat. My other animals aren't real either. It's a good thing. My dad says it's a zoo here anyway because Paula keeps buying me animals and Dad doesn't really like my snake or lizzards, only my hampsters. But I have turtles and hermit crabs too.

We go to the pet store every Monday and every Friday. They like us there.

Thank you that you read my poem and typed me a message.

Gomar - I forgot
Oh ya, I forgot to tell you that I kept "hided" in my poem with the date I wrote it. Now, I am going to correct it. I forgot "hided" was wrong, Paula and Daddy keep telling me that when I say it. Paula and I read what people type here about our poems and then fix our poems so we can get better. But, Paula already has it the first way I wrote it in my poetry book we are making and in my scrapbook too.

Tinalouise - my picture
To Tinalouise. This is Kyle. The picture I put under my bed is a picture of a tiger carrying her baby in her mouth. My kittens used to do that. It doesn't hurt them - do you know that? I love tigers! I want one but Paula said, "No way, Jose!" Dad said if I get one, he's going to get an apartment. But, he said that about the snake and he still lives here with us.

I think you can read more of my poems soon. Paula posted them when I was at my Mom's so that I might get some e-mails when I am here.

Thank you that you typed to me.

This is Kyle. Thank you for saying my poem is Kool!


Paula said you think that I am her grandson. I am actually her step-son. But that's okay that you thinked that.

Hi Kyle,

What a wonderful poem! I'm so glad that you're already writing poetry at six years old! That is a wonderful thing -- keep writing. When you're old like me, you'll be glad you did.

True that "hided" might not be a word, but you should keep it in here anyway. It works. It has a special charm of its own.

You should give your stepmom a big hug for encouraging you to write and helping you post your poems! That's a terrific thing for her to do -- you have a good stepmom. I have a son about your age -- maybe I should encourage him to post his work too, eh? What do you think? He writes stories, though, not poems.

Excellent work, my friend!
