Thanks to Kiesha at Whispers from the Ridge for hosting Poetry Friday.
On Monday we had our last Family Library Night. It was a celebration of reading and saying goodbye to my fabulous families. It was so wonderful. I am grateful for my advocation.
The half-sister of the second grader who tragically died in 2004. Her brother’s accident planted the seed of the manuscript I am working on. As a fifth grader she just read my manuscript and in her card to me, she called us family.
I was gifted with a signed collection of the odes that Poetry Rocks wrote. In it was a surprise ode written bt Avery. Here it is:
Ode to Ms. Mac
I see Ms. Mac reading a book.
I hear Ms. Mac reading a book.
I feel relaxed by Ms. Mac reading
a book out loud so everyone can hear it.
I wonder if she is reading an Eric Ode
Yes she is.
Ah, Avery, this is wonderful and such a gift. Thank you.
