If I Were a Storekeeper in 1849

During the Gold Rush, I would be a storekeeper.

A month ago, I heard that there was a gold rush at Sutter’s Mill.  I am a store keeper, and when the prospectors came, they would buy supplies.  The supplies they had to buy were a pick, a pan, and food to survive.

Our town started to grow, and now we have hotels and more stores.  The people that came were called the 49ers because the year was 1849.  After the Gold Rush was over, the town is now a ghost town, and I became rich.

The Sparkling

The Sparkling


I am glowing.

I see the sprinkled-around stars.

I see the wavy, black, empty sky.

I orbit around the earth.

I wave to my friends on the earth.

I swim in the dark blue sky.

I am the glowing lava moon.




Fluffy, soft

Falling, cold, pretty

I’m cold, getting warmer

Pointy, green, pretty

Pokey, long
