Wake up your poetry brains with 15 Words or Less (guidelines here)!
Here’s a ginormous snowman I saw on my way home from a school visit a few weeks ago. It was huge–10-15 feet tall!?It makes me think of:
1)?What would a snowman carry in her purse?
2)?What if the Great Lakes were formed by a melting snowfamily?
3) What would it be like to be the little brother of a perfect snowman?
And here’s my poem first draft:
A Little Snowbro’s Lament
Recess snowboard hill.
Donator of Sno-cones off his back.
Who can compete?
