Words are Gifts

Back Here

Today I decided to write couplets about being back at school in person with the students.

We’re back here again, making it seem as real as possible

When the old ways are invisible.

Standing on the stage

They open a page.

Weary of the time

They all decide to mime.

Today is the day we start

Until the time we part.

  2. What a beautiful, sweet poem. I do hope you’ll decide to share it with your students!
