Graduation Day


Names are read
Alphabetically said

Diplomas are given
Academically driven

Family’s proud
Cheers are loud

Across the stage
Life’s next page

In cap and gown
College bound

Graduation day
Hip-hip-hooray!

Itchy Pup

Nibble-nibble,
Pup chews her paws.
Nibble-nibble,
Allergies the cause.

Scratch-scratch,
Pup can't beat the itch.
Scratch-scratch,
Vet thinks we're rich.

Lick-lick
Meds wrapped in cheese.
Lick-lick,
Pup is very pleased.

Who Am I? (guest poet)

Today my guest poet is my 11 year old daughter, Maureen. She came up with this poem during my Poem in Your Pocket lesson in her 5th grade class. Thank you, Mo!

Who Am I?
by Maureen Magee-Uhlik

I wear a halo of fiery light,
I am a sweet delight.

You eat me on your special day,
I celebrate your aging way.

I give you great pleasure,
and memories you will treasure.

Who am I?
