Poem for the Day

What can I say? This one is admittedly rough around the edges. But it came to me this afternoon. Two days ago I went on the morning announcements at school and encouraged the kids to participate in poetry writing month. Who knew that first through fifth graders would take me up on the offer? I was touched.

Come one, come all I said

Write your poems;

Pour your hearts

on paper

the pictures you see

the stories you tell

Write them for your teacher

for me

for you

for nobody

But write them

Each and every day

So they dispatched their words

Released them to the world with outstretched arms

And the hope that someone would read,

Would notice,

Would enjoy

with a message of encouragement in return.
