a little poet
One of my petite fifth grade girls regularly gifts me these incredibly sophisticated poems written in pencil on blue-lined paper. Yesterday I asked her if she was going to write me one of her masterpieces for Valentine's Day. She gasped with joyful anticipation. And this morning she handed me a poem that switches points of view, from a fierce but lonely dragon to a shy but generous elf.
