I completely forgot too

Like mother, like daughter, I guess!!  (and make sure to read Mom’s poem if you haven’t – it’s the perfect Alaskan summer poem!)

Here’s another middle school poem – maybe our last for awhile.  I’m getting tired of them!

by Myra Cohn Livingston

Shiny colored tents
pop up above people’s heads
at the first raindrop

How angry you are
today, Ocean, as your waves
knock me off my feet!

Even in summer,
bees have to work in their orange-
and-black striped sweaters

The first day of school…
does my teacher wonder who
these new faces are?

Here we are, Winter,
just you and I in the snow,
freezing together
