Poetry Friday: My Dog

October 15th, 2010

We have another student poem this week from second-grader Seth Reed. His poem My Dog appeared in Ralph Fletcher and JoAnn Portalupi’s book, Craft Lessons: Teaching Writing K-8.

My Dog

He pushed his wet nose
against my cheek.
I remember my dog.

He liked to catch leaves
when they fell off the trees.
I remember my dog.

At night I felt safe
when he slept near me.
I remember my dog.

    This is so simple and, at the same time, so resonant….
