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