For Me? Goody Gumdrops!

National Poetry Month can now be fully celebrated, for I have received a wonderful gift: a poem written just for me!

Christi, My Writing Coach
by Larry Logan

When with her, I see ordinary things
Real things
Trees that are green and brown trees
Sliced apples for a snack

Fog drifting on the field
Drowsy cows wake up
Laughing is simple and so are shoes
(Except tying them)

Ornate clip-on earrings that Grandma wore
She is gone now

Words jingle on lovely paper
A round table with chairs that squeak
when I lean back

Show don't tell
Watch the landing

Write a poem for a teacher, mentor or friend.
