Today, as I head off to the elementary school to talk about poetry with the second and third graders, I thought I’d share one of the poems I wrote for a collection about the moon. I’ll be sharing this poem with second graders this afternoon, but you guys get to see it first.
On a walk the other day,
I didn’t know quite what to say.
Although it was still afternoon,
In the sky, I saw the moon.
I’m just hoping the clouds lift enough to see the sun today, to tell the truth. And that my voice holds out. And that I manage to wake up a bit more before I have to "go on."
