Poetry Friday is being hosted this week by Tracey at Tangles & Tails
Today there was no school as there was a snow day. All the snow reminded me of an incident from 14 years ago when I was teaching a unit on poetry to my children when I was homeschooling them. The original post is found here.
Each of my children wrote a poem, but my 8 year old at the time son was originally a little reluctant to write his. Before producing the picture poem below, he recited something like Winter, winter I hate winter.
Later when I had some time to myself. I reflected on the incident and wrote a poem as if it was written by an 8 year old who did not want to write a poem.
It reminds me of something that P.D. Eastman of Go Dog Go, or The Best Nest might write.
Winter. Winter. Winter. Winter.
