Girls – A Poem

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!



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.
