Listening to every heart
Patricia emailed me today with this poem and the following:
I was recently substitute teaching in a sophomore high school English class. The lesson of day...Poetry, more specifically a "Where I am From" poem composed by George Ella Lyon. We analyzed the poem and then students were required to compose a poem in this style. What a joy it was to read their work! I decided to make their assignment my own. After all, it was high time I wrote something again. So, here is my assignment. If you feel so inclined I would love to read your "Where I am from" poem.
She wasn't sure how to format this as a challenge, and I said I would help. Here is her contribution:
have fun with yours!
