Student poetry

I've been having the students work on poetry for the past couple lessons in their writing class. Since rhyme and rhythm are foreign concepts as far as Japanese poetry is concerned, they find it challenging. However, they do come up with some really interesting ideas.

The town is very quiet.
The town blooms violet.

Who are you?
Standing there
Breathing air

In the afternoon I walked in the door
There was a little rabbit fighting with a bore

I like to eat.
You like a sweet.
Those make us fat.
But we can't stop that.
