Folds and Folds Of spun sugar, like a soft Gray blanket over the land.
This is from Silver Seeds by Paul Paolilli and Dan Brewer, New York: Scholastic, 2001. This is the book our class read over and over and we practiced writing our acrostics. I will post some of the work over the next few days.
Let the rain kiss you Let the rain beat upon your head with liquid silver drops Let the rain sing you a lullaby The rain makes still pools on the sidewalk The rain makes running pools in the gutter The rain plays a little sleep song on our roof at night And I love the rain. - Langston Hughes -
I found this poem in "A Poem for Every Day" by Susan Moger. I used it when I was teaching 2nd grade. I can't wait to dive into it and remind myself of all the wonderful memories we had!
