Artsy Fartsy



Yeah ... I have no idea what that is either. Gavin brought that little ditty home from school this past week. Says it's his "art project." Archie promptly picked it up and broke part of it off ... shhh ... don't tell!

Anywho, I stumbled across this awesome BLOG written by a cool chick named Jenners and she does this little ditty called "Fun and Games" ...

Fun and Games With Jenners


This week we were challenged to re-write a poem by William Carlos Williams and I decided to write an Ode to Gavin's little artsy fartsy man.

This Is Just To Say

I have seen
the mounds
that were in
the art class

and which
you were probably
wondering who
created them

Forgive me
they were delicate
so broken
and secretly glued


Let me know and I'd be glad to come to your town for a poetry reading; only a nominal fee too.

As a teacher, we can not sometimes even tell you what they made! It is darn cute though! I like the ode too!

I love it! I love the inspiration -- the "mound man" and the poem! Just think, the little mound man got his own tribute -- not all works of art get something like that!

Thanks for playing!
