Eden Is a Poet, And I Didn't Know It.

Eden's printer didn't work last night.  Like always, it was out of ink right when we needed it.  In a panic, Eden emailed his homework to me, so that I could email it to his teacher.  This is what he sent.



A PoeIYouChicken SouBOWL
You can find a poem deep under the sea
Or above the shimmering canopy of a tree
They are hiding, asleep deep under the ground
And come to life when happiness is found
They brightly stare at the sun's warm dance
And barely gleam in the shadow of plants
Poems can be found in your heart and soul
Or even in the warmth of your chicken soup bowl
You sometimes see them in the bliss of the night
And in people you see, dancing under the light
You hear them in the voices of the ones you love
Even those who rest in heaven above

Holy Shmoly! Did you cry??? I totally would have cried. And you can tell him I said this...
I applaud his use of vivid imagery and verb choice. His use of personification was outstanding. I don't see how he could make anything less than an A and receive an offer to be published in the school literary magazine.

Just sayin. :)
