Poem from 6th Grade

In 6th grade I was 11 years old. For an English class project, I put together a little book of poems that I had written. I uncovered that little book this summer and I typed them into my computer. Here is the first poem of what might be called my first "published" work:


Everyone should have a friend.
To him you may have things to lend.
His dog may have the name of Rover.
He may ask you to come over.

I think my poetry has come a long way since then (and I think that is a good thing).

Pretty good for a kid, don't you think?

And like all good poetry, it reveals what meant something to you: friendship and dogs...

Thanks, Maria! I'd lost sight of that. I think you are right.
