The Sad Birds

In honor of poetry month, my 7 year old daughter and I wrote a poem together while we were home sick from school today. We spotted workers from a tree removal company taking down 3 trees in our neighbor’s backyard. The ideas and most words were written by Elina.

The Sad Birds

by Elina Harwood with  Krista Senatore

 

They took the tree

down.

 

They climbed the tree.

They sawed off the

branches.

 

The branches fell

on

the

ground.

 

They tied a rope

around the trunk

and played

tug-of-war

with the tree.

 

The

tree

fell

down.

 

The birds

lost

their home.

Elina watching the tree come down.
