Poetry and prose

On his last report card, Archer raised his writing grade from 3 ("proficient") to 4 ("advanced"). It's always fascinating to how his mind interprets the assignments. Here are a few samples from the latest batch he brought home. The last one is my favorite.

Winter Poetry [an acrostic]

With some
Ice skates
Now you are ready for winter,
Early to skate -- we're not
Ready yet! We have to wait 'til winter.


If I ruled the world I'd write a speech about kindness. And do kind things. And work for president.

Thunder Poem [instructions: "Write a poem telling how thunder makes you feel. Your poem does not have to rhyme. Give your poem a title and write your name at the end."]

How Far Away is the Thunder?

1-2-3-4-5 KABOOM!!
The thunder is 3 miles away.
Lightning. 1-2-3-4. BAM!!
1-2-3. Crash!! 1-2. BANG!

I love the thunder poem. It's both a legitimate poem and totally Archer-tastic.
