Poetry Train: Tulips are poeming

Today in Poetry-writing class I had my kids use nouns as verbs in their poems and this is what I came up with.

Tulips are poeming
out all over.

I see their lines
against stone walls

in a multi-colored
rhyme scheme.

Clumps of them
sonnet gardens

while straggler haiku
dot lawns.

Tulips are penciled
on the green paper
of spring.
