55 - First Verse
"Can you help me write a poem?" my seven year-old asks.
Then works and works, penning his first ever verse:
i send a piece of mail
from the back of a whale
where i stand
to stay out of the sand
& pack my junk
inside his trunk
he's not an elephant
Write a story in 55 words. Give it a try or just read more, go see g-man.
My son Cole, wrote the verse included above using his spelling words this week. Writing being one of his least favorite things to do, i was rather proud of him.
Today over at dVerse, Ami Mattison is teaching on spoken word poetry---Ami is a great word artist and performer, so do stop in. I am still working on my piece, so be back in a bit to add it.
