new brew

PreK Flu

And lo the teacher was laid low

by new, exquisite germs.
They came to school all set to grow
with squeals and leaps and squirms.

Fourteen in the morning, 

seventeen pm,
I'm walloped without warning
by PreK FluTM.


Is this new brew terrible?
Nope--
it's beautifully bearable!

  1. Ha, ha, you tricky poet. At first I thought you really did have the flu, but then I read and looked more carefully, and understood the "beautifully bearable". Marvelous poem, Heidi!

    1. Actually I was really sick for about 24 hours (notably in the middle of last night), but again, it's worth it!

  2. Leave it to you to come out of your first week with PreK with a clever, engaging poem! It's also such fun to see those young writers' work!

  7. Heidi, you got me with this fun poem. Since I did not have on my glasses, I thought the images below were germs but they really are drawings from your squirmy, wonderful little ones. I love what you wrote and amazed at how you rallied from your illness.
