This week I was lucky enough to spend two days working at Susan Lindgren Elementary School in St. Louis Park, in the 3rd grade. They were great fun to write and talk poetry with.
Splat! Drat! Hate messy house. Whee! Skate
Around on toys cars on the ground. Fun. Dangerous
Good for hide and seek. Take a break to clean.
Sister plays with toys, dumps everything out. Messy again.
Ants crawl around. Food on the ground. Hard
To get around with stuff on the ground. Mom comes
Upstairs, says Oh My! Then you see your sister
Run and hide. She moves the toys under her bed.
Mom says What Happened Here! I tell her. I feel
trouble near. Time out. Messy.
