Soundless mountains staring at them,
the peaked giants were bone-white.
Mulan’s army as thin as a stem,
looked at the mist-covered site.
Along came the colossal battalion of Shang Yu,
And outnumbered Mulan’s by a hundred few.
Out came her army’s cannon,
As Shang Yu’s army ran down the hooded-peak.
Mulan knew that they wouldn’t survive,
Bam! A thought came into her mind.
Seizing the canon, hoping to stay alive,
she ran up the peak because there was no time.
Reaching the top she aimed the cannon,
off it went and hit the snow capped giant.
Sending an avalanche hurtling down,
Shank Yu’s army, crushed into Earth’s brown

The eighth grade students learned to analyse, write and recite poetry (taking part in the English Elocution as well!)
Poems were written using video prompts (like a clip from Mulan), inspired by research based on current events, or by exploring less traditional styles of poetry like “black out” or “emoji” poetry.
