A (Sigh) Goose Dies in Poem #344


Goose
by Amy LV


Students - this poem is a fable poem, or animal story with a moral.  I have known people who care more about their clothing than necessary, and sometimes I have done this too.  Today's poem poses a warning against such mixed-up priorities.  

If you have a message or belief that you would like to convey, one way to do so is through a fable or fable poem.  Simply change your people and situation to one that fits animals, and off you go!

If you have ever wondered why geese fly in a V formation, you can learn about it at Everyday Mysteries, a wonderful resource from the Library of Congress.
