My poem, "If Great Lakes," was read and emulated by 285 public school fifth graders from Chicago.

She became upset because we had no more cheese. 
Weeks later we had a lot of cheese.

Yo Zachary, Here are more posts, these ones from third graders. The poems are written in a thirty minute session, so I leave them unedited, as many amusing mispellings occur.

All the best, Tyler

Then I would become an ocean
I would become an ocean
That gets its water beep.
I would become a fish
But also try for protection.

So good.
