Writer's Workshop: OK Bridgford

When I was in college I wrote a poem for our poetry professor just for fun. This is another example of one of my six lined poems where the first two pairs of lines rhyme— the fifth line rhymes with a word in the sixth, and the sixth line rhymes with the first two. I am using this poem for Mamma Kat's Writer's Workshop

2.) Write a poem for your favorite teacher of all time.
I don't know if she was my favorite teacher of all time— but at least I wrote a poem about her.

Oh— K Bridgford is her name
passing out tons of paper is her game.

She makes us stuff our folders so thick
we wonder if her real name is St. Nick.

But keep the classes going with fun and wit
so we can sit and share in your fame.

Aside from the sounds like a fun class!

Mama Wheaton said...

Do you like to write poetry now? I am in my first poetry class ever and to be honest I don't get anything we've read.

That's pretty cool!

I hated the days in school when we were assigned to write poetry. It's just not something my brain is wired to do.

I named my son after a favorite teacher. I'm not much for making up poetry.

Trying to set a comment whore record today, instead of folding laundry.

When I first started the workshop, I tried poetry. Now I'm scared. You did well with it though!

Petra a.k.a The Wise (*Young*) Mommy said...

Nice poem. Almost as nice as the poem you wrote about my daughter and her diaper hat.

Keep up the good work my man!

Erin said...

In general, poetry scares me. I could understand this one though. Did you get an A?

Erin said...

Oops. I just read that it was for fun. I don't get an A on my comment. Sorry!

The Wife O Riley said...

Nice job, very creative!

Kristen said...

I love your poems!

You are so clever!

Debbie said...

I have never been good at poetry. How fun that you still have this.
