Kunimasu Speak Through Poem #264

Students - yesterday's poem was about kunimasu too, but from a human perspective.  Today (with some prompting  from yesterday's commenters) I decided to write another.  This poem is from the fishes' perspective.

Georgia Heard's book CREATURES OF THE AIR, SEA, AND SKY, includes a wonderful poem for two voices called "Fishes."

  1. You know, in reading your post below about having the children write, it occurred to me that there is something in children writing poetry that inherently affirms to them the dignity and importance of their own minds.

    Which much of the outside world, sadly, doesn't do.

    They're lucky to have you.

  2. Shelley, I could not agree more with your words regarding how writing affirms the dignity of one's mind. It's miraculous to see what children write...every moment is a new surprise to me and to them too! Thank you so much for your note. A.
