"Truth is the property of no individual but is the treasure of all men."
~ Ralph Waldo Emerson
Yesterday, my daughter's teacher shared two of her recent poems with me. Both are short and sweet; one a Haiku, the other an acrostic. Grace who's 8, is the younger of my two girls and is...how do I put this...also the trickiest. In a nutshell, she keeps me on my toes pretty much all the time. So, both of these poems speak volumes to both who she is and how she views me as her mom. The first that came through was the Haiku.
Grace, did you do your homework?
But, again, at least she threw the 'nice' in there, too. The second one was the acrostic poem.
