Faith's Poetry Recital


We have been reading Shel Silverstein poems for the whole month with our book club group. Yesterday was the poetry recital, and each of the girls read or recited the poem of their choice. I was so proud of Faith. She was one of the girls who had memorized hers, and she did a very good job reciting it to the audience. Her poem was "Senses" from The Light in the Attic.

A Mouth was talking to a Nose and an Eye.
A passing listening Ear
Said, "Pardon me, but you spoke so loud,
I couldn't help but overhear."
But the Mouth just closed and the Nose turned up
And the Eye just looked away,
And the Ear with nothing more to hear
Went sadly on its way.
