A Poetry Reading

On the day before Christmas break, Cody's language arts class had a poetry reading. The students were given the assignment to write a poem about their 'getaway place'. Rick went to the reading while I was at Kari's preschool Christmas party. Here is a copy of the poem:

My Bathroom
By Cody Hall

There is a small room in my room
It is my bathroom

It's quiet and small
It has a thick wall
That is not tall

I walk around
To calm down
It'll turn my frown upside down

My bathroom

Watch out Robert Frost.
