A Poem is a Firefly

A Poem is a Firefly

A poem is a firefly
Upon the summer wind;
Instead of shining where she goes,
She lights up where she's been.

This is a perfect children's poem! It is short, sweet and has many layers.
Thank you for sharing this gem with us.

I'll join in the chorus of "love this"! Would you mind if I printed out a copy for my classroom wall?
