Mechanic - Imagination Poems

Replacing the Bulb
by Amy LV

Students - Sometimes I like to think about the world of animals, to imagine what it's like and all of the secrets that bugs and birds and little mammals have. Do they have mechanics? I imagine not...but it's fun to imagine that they do. Have you ever imagined something silly about the animal world? Such journeys of thought might give you a poem or two!

Dana Schreiner is the winner of the drawing for Ralph Fletcher's A WRITER'S NOTEBOOK over at Sharing Our Notebooks. Dana - please leave your address in an e-mail to me at amy at amylv dot com, and I will send both you and Grace your books this week.

Marjorie is hosting today's Poetry Friday roundup over at Paper Tigers.  Head on over to find this week's bounty.

  1. Love your mechanics poem. Bravo!!

    And congrats on the 300 milestone. :)

  2. That's fantastically good. I'm going to share that with my daughter today. Wonderful rhythm and rhymes!


  3. That's a delightful poem - I love all the ailments you summon up. Maybe I'll look at spiders differently now? Well, I can imagine I might ;-)

    Congratulations on your 300 milesotne - and what a wonderful way to celebrate.

  4. How fun, I love this idea and would love to be one of these mechanics. A bug's eye view would be interesting wouldn't it?

  5. Amy, you have the best imagination! This is funny. You've got me thinking about other 'professionals' who might be needed: doctors repairing broken legs! instructors teaching all kinds of things, like how to buzz, hover, hide. And on and on. I know that once you get going, there's no stopping! Thanks for this fun poem!

  6. That poem is charming, Amy! and I love what you did to celebrate reaching 300.
