Poetry Friday -- Back to School
Best wishes for a fabulous school year!
by Angela Maiers
Make me feel special,
Make me feel included,
Make me feel valued,
Smile for me,
Tell me that you're happy to see me,
Tell me that you're happy to teach me,
Tell me that you're happy I am here.
Tell me about our work together
Tell me how I can be of help and mean it genuinely
See all of me,
See my emotions, my laughter my curiosity, my anticipation
See my right, and I will work on the "wrongs"
(the rest of the poem is here)
The round up this week is at a wrung sponge.

In the spirit of full disclosure, I must reveal that I did not create the TextFlow of the Emily Dickinson poem that I shared last week for Poetry Friday. I found it, right there with her poem, on the Poets.org site. Look here for all of the poems on their site that are animated with TextFlow. And yes, if you are so inclined, you will someday be able to try it for yourself.
