Sunsets for Poetry Month

The recent sunsets I experienced in St. Lucia are a reminder of upcoming work at Osborne Elementary, Houston in conjunction with Poetry Month.

The recent sunsets I experienced in St. Lucia are a reminder of the upcoming work I will be doing at Osborne Elementary School in Houston in conjunction with Poetry Month, one of my favorite times of the year!

In our initial exploration, we will focus on various elements of poetry, including imagery. Students in 3rd grade last year read Lillian Moore’s poem, Sunset, and then painted the image they saw in their mind’s eye, finally turning them into their own poems about Sunset. Can’t wait to see the K-2 students’ work.

Sunset

There’s dazzle
  in the Western Sky
    Colors spill and 
      run
    The pond mouth
     lies open
         greedy
     for the last drop
         of
     melting
     sun
