Students - Today's poem is one that I wrote back in 2010 with my friend Charles Ghigna, otherwise known as Father Goose. He wrote the beginning and ending of the poem and then passed it to me, asking if I'd like to write some middle stanzas. This is not something that I do often, and it was a lot of fun to work together with another writer. If you want to see a neat piece of art that goes with this poem, visit Charles's blog to see his son Chip's piece.
Today's poem is written in three line stanzas called tercets. You can see the rhyme pattern pretty easily. Once Charles shared what he had written, I was able to follow his lead.
Our family does not have a television, and you know what? We don't miss it a bit! I am extremely happy that nothing like this exists in our home either.
