Last school year our class was brimming with poets. Upon visiting them recently in 2nd grade I was happy to see that their way with words has not diminished. As they shared their poems with me I was especially taken with one entitled "I Won't Wake Up!" written by Max.
Who hasn't felt this way before?
I Won't Wake Up!
I won't wake up
I don't care that the school is waiting for me
I don't care that if my sister put the ice in my head
I don't care if I miss breakfast
I don't care if the bus is waiting for me
I Don't Care!!
Luckily for Max there are only 4 days left to this school year, so hopefully he will be free to stay in bed for as long as he wants.
