Girls – A Poem

by | Jan 2, 2015 | Books

From time to time I’ll share a poem I’ve written for children, often from the child’s point of view.
I wrote this poem for a workshop I did for a class of third grade girls. I wanted to make them smile – and teach them iambic tetrameter!

Girls

Melissa schemes and Katie plays
And Mindy dreams away the days.
Emma reads and Lizzie writes;
Corrine keeps peach and Cindy fights.
Elaine is brave and Ruth’s afraid –
It takes all kinds to make third grade.
