Clay Watkins, I can relate to you! Teaching science everyday to middle schoolers—yeah, that’s my world, too, only I don’t teach, I’m their nurse. You’re a treasure, and what you do is extremely important, more than you know. So if you’re reading this today (which is a Thursday, meaning we’re both at work….) my hat’s off to you and all you and your colleagues do!
POEM IN MY POCKET
Earlier today, I discovered to my dismay,
I had missed an important day.
I looked down into my screen
to discover what I had missed
National Poem in Your Pocket Day.
I didn’t have a poem in my pocket,
It – my pocket that is – was rather empty,
But I smiled, and moved forward,
One foot after the other,
And, made it count, anyway.
