   Add Words one Needs to Hear

 
On a scrap found near a school:
 
"Write another word for CRY,  AFTER,
BAD,  ALWAYS,  GOOD-BYE,  LOST,
and DARK."
 
Hope Teacher went on to say:
 
"Now write another word that means
SMILE,  NOW,  RELATIVE,  OFTEN,  
GREETINGS, FOUND, and BRIGHT."
 
Because words are important.
Because words help shape.
Because in our hearts, all of us are poets.
Because poets do not go easy into Night.
 
Now explain the meaning of the phrase,
SLEEP ON IT.
 

  (c) Phyllis Jean Green,  February, 2008

The English teacher *me* is GRINNING!!! Teacher needs to think about it, if teacher has been prescribed these words on page 100,432 of the National Curriculum Handbook, the government needs to think about it -perhaps they will create a special think-tank made up of sidelined breakdown candidates, pay them vast sums of money to come up with a new Point to Teach at 11.17 am, part 2b of page 100,432? Oh -they did that already - rewrote the entire Handbook 7 times, the Teacher didnt sleep for 4 years rewriting the resources or replying to 'memos' re 'very unconventional practice' - Oh Pea -you got me started!!!! GREAT POEM - thanks for the read, Miss Goodman (aka lil'Miss G)
