Fox (by Matthew Connor)

By Matthew Connor

Fox is mean because he took a magpie,

out of the sky,

well, goodbye magpie.

Fox then ate the magpie!


Why did he eat the magpie,

that he took from the sky?
Matthew wrote this poem this morning.  I changed nothing except for leaving out the last line which goes "Dog is nice because he ate the fox."  I am hoping he works on a second stanza later!

I don't force any of my children (except for Ryan!) to write.  They see me do it.  Andrew is writing a novel that will probably be done before mine.  Aidan has been writing an occasional journal entry.  And now this.

Sigh.  Sometimes I wonder if I am homeschooling the wrong child!
