“Mr. Sly” by Matthew Roller

Matthew Roller (age 6)


I’m Mr. Sly,
I go to the sky.
You will find me at school
Inside the pool.
I eat slaw
With my paw.
I play chess
At my best.
I kick candy
That is handy.
I kiss birds.

Why do you like to write poetry?

Matthew Roller: “I really like to make rhymes. It’s fun and enjoyable. I love to read Dr. Seuss’s books and I got inspired by Dr. Seuss’s poems. I wanted to write my own poem that would be fun to read.”
