Module 4 - Poetry Break #4a

Poetry Break #4a

Introduction: On a nice, fresh, spring day bring your class outside (make sure you have administration approval) for a breath of fresh air and a poetry break.

Move Over
by Lilian Moore

    through the grass,
move over.

    Black and
    clover rover,
let me pass.

    Fat and
    loud on the
    let me
your string.

[From: Something New Begins: New and Selected Poems. By Lilian Moore, Atheneum, 1982.]

Extension: Have the class bring drawing pads, pencils, and something to color with; have them draw the bumblebee or something else if they’d like. Share another poem such as Spring Talk by David McCord.
