Betsy at Teaching Young Writers has us celebrating poetry and sidewalk chalk at the end of every month. My daughter and I decided to join the fun this last Saturday of August. Here’s my daughter’s poem:
covering the sidewalk
with colorful dreams
What gets you to stop and look?
A red light?
A starry night?
A poem left on the sidewalk?
But here’s my favorite thing about putting my poem on the sidewalk. When my youngest son read it, he said, “Everything.”
Happy Saturday. Happy Chalk-a-bration.
