This month is National Poetry Month. I thought I'd join Mary Lee and try to write a poem each day for the month of April in celebration again this year. We'll see how it goes. There are a lot of other events taking place this month. Stop by Jama's Alphabet Soup for more National Poetry Month events.
Our first day back from break.
The students rush right in,
to play a funny joke
before the day begins.
"Look over there," one student shouts;
a voice so full of fear.
Another group walks through the door
"Your shoes untied," I hear.
Across the room a friend cries out,
"There's a spider in your hair."
I'm not too sure I'll make it,
these jokes could use some flair.
"There's a hole in your pants,"
someone giggles to a friend.
The jokes continue across the day
When will this mayhem end?
"It's April Fools'," they shriek
as they try to be a tricker.
The things first graders do,
to get a little snicker.
