Poetry Reading by 5th and 6th graders
I went to a poetry reading of 5th and 6th graders from the Open School at Mack in Ann Arbor. To my surprise, a 5th grader, Leika, stood up and read her poem, “The Huron River”.
Wind in the trees
Cars zooming on the road
Canoe paddles skimming the water
The ground is wet
The scent of rotten leaves
It looks colorful
The squish squash, squish squash of my shoes.
That is the huron river.
Thanks for sharing this with me and us, Leika. It is a beautiful poem and I can just picture the setting.
Thanks also to Mike Derhammer and Scott Beal for their classroom support.
