Poetry Night

Mei Mei recently celebrated her school poetry night. 

I often feel teary eyed at children's events and this was no exception.  I cannot believe how far this little girl has come in just one year!

Last year at this time I couldn't even imagine her in a classroom, let alone standing up in front of an audience reciting a poem from memory!  Amazing! 

The Little Turtle
By Vachel Lindsay
There was a little turtle.
He lived in a box.
He swam in a puddle.
He climbed on the rocks.
He snapped at a mosquito.
He snapped at a flea.
He snapped at a minnow.
And he snapped at me.
He caught the mosquito.
He caught the flea.
He caught the minnow.
But he didn't catch me.
