on the road

Earlier today, I sent Paulie and Elizabeth on a walk with instructions to notice something they had never noticed before. When they returned, I asked them to write a poem sharing what they noticed.

Elizabeth's poem:

Many holes in the road,
some holes gigantic and deep,
but mine, minuscule.

Paulie's poem:

Paint Splatter
Colorful drips splattered on the ground.
It does not look like a toad.
Blue and red on the side of the road.
Colorful drips that I have found.
It's artwork, my friend,
and we can't let it end.

(Instagrams random and not necessarily related to the walk or poetry.)


  1. Those are both wonderful poems! I love them!

  2. What a fabulous project! And the poems are wonderful too. I will be stealing this idea :)

  3. What a fun idea for the kids! I like their poems. I didn't know that it was Poetry month. I may have to copy you. ;)


I love to hear what you think!
