Words are Gifts

School Day

I am trying out different forms of poetry, so today I wrote a Tercet, on a Monday that feels like Friday.

Monday so trying

Eyes of teachers prying

What will we achieve by striving?

In future I can add more stanzas to this Tercet.

  5. This is a GREAT one. One that I also think your students could really identify with, as well! As for the Mondays that feel like Fridays, yes. So many days this year and last have felt like OTHER days. I still wonder why we do that…?
