an acrostic poem

Eliza says,

Call my mommy, teacher, it’s a splinter,” (holding out her tiny hand...) while

Lavender and cedar seeds are strewn

In kindergarten’s garden. Sweet

Peas are planted--everything’s organic, all is new--in

Springtime, we bid farewell to winter; it’s April (yet, somehow) it’s nearly June--the

End of yet another school year; everything will blossom here, then wither all too soon.

    As a reader, I truly enjoy how this poem describes a memorable time in a kindergarten garden. It reminds me of how nice and innocent children are, and how beautiful nature is. Eliza calling for her mother, as well as the lavender and cedar seeds, let me fully imagine the event. But it also makes me sad, thinking about how fast time passes and how things come to an end. Overall, I like how the poem combines pleasant and bitter feelings, making me ponder on how priceless memories are.

    Awwwwwe, that's sweet. Did You do an experiment where You grew plants for school? I did that when I was in kindergarten. We grew beans in wet paper towels and plastic sandwich baggies. Mine grew to be the biggest. Then we took them home and planted them. My plant fit in right with the tomatoes.

    So sweet! I adored this; I remember planting sweet peas in tiny milk cartons in 1st grade and watching them sprout and grow; I was so proud.
