Here is one of the couplet responses:

Emily's bird came down the walk,
It only ate, it did not talk.

I snapped an unlucky worm in two,
and drank up some convenient dew.

It got out of the way of a beetle's roam,
and that's the end of Emily's poem.
    -- Ava N.

I chose William Shakespeare.
The words that came out of his mouth, I like to hear.
It made me joyous and happy,
Even if I felt crappy.
He puts a  ?  smile on my face,
As his words gently glide through space.
 -- Hillary H.
