The Girl's Contribution to National Poetry Month

National Poetry Month ends today, so I thought I'd share a poem The Girl wrote after school the other day.

Gold Fish
by The Girl, age 8

Always hungry and funny
it swims through a bubbling statue
in water
I love it.


Isn't that cute? I bet Auntie Serena is proud, given all the poetry she's featured on her blog this month.

(I don't have a recent picture of The Girl to share, so I thought I'd post a picture of her 1st communion, which was a year ago this weekend.)

I have a goldfish named Charlie. This poem is pretty much what I think of him all the time. Tell The Girl her poem is great!

Aw, she's so cute! As cute as that poem! It makes me want to scrounge up some of my old poems. If I could ever find them.

Wanda said...

There's something fishy about that poem ... ;)

The Girl looks so angelic, what a beautiful first communion picture!

The pic is adorable - what a grin!
