for a while I just sit there, in the cooling shade of my favorite tree. everything is perfect. perfect as can be, under my favorite tree that loves and adores the company of me. soon I tire just sitting there, and so I start to climb up its smooth, brown bark...up into the branches so high. I start to slip, but it catches me, and lets me know I'm safe...even when the wind pushes me, and when I look out at the sky up high because its my favorite tree, that loves and adores me.

When I rode a unicorn

Grade: 4

One cloudy day I was skipping along on a path in a forest when a great gust of wind blew. A little  teacup landed right in front of me. As soon as I gripped it in my shaky hands, it started to rain. wishing I could get out of the rain....."Poof!'' a beautiful unicorn appeared. Wanting fast transportation, I hopped on the unicorns back and kicked my feet and ........ Whooosh! We were off!

Soon I could see that we were approching my house. i kicked again when we were in the area of my house. After I hopped off and said but to the unicorn he dissapered!
