Welcome to where I am, where my kitchen's always messy, a pot's (or a poet) always about to boil over, a dog is always begging to be fed. Drafts of poems on the counter. Windows filled with leaves. Wind. Clouds moving over the mountains. If you like poetry, books, and music--especially dog howls when a siren unwinds down the hill-- you'll like it here.

STUDENT POET OF THE DAY:ROBERTO RUBIO-OJEDA


Everyone knows about the Geico Gecko, but what about this Gecko? Seven year-old Roberto Rubio-Ojeda introduces his friend in the poem below. This piece shows us the fun of rhyming, something that children of all ages enjoy.


THE GECKO

A Gecko is sticky,
It can climb on a wall.
It can't stay forever.
Sooner or later it will fall.

A gecko's color is bright shiny green.
What if it was dark green?
Perhaps it would be mean!

A Gecko can't fly
Into the sky.
It if was sick and it was my pet,
I would take it to a vet.

A Gecko is big.
But not like a pig.
The Gecko is long,
But it's not very strong.

We can go on a walk,
But he can't really talk.
I will defend my friend
To the very end!

by Roberto Rubio-Ojeda

Roberto is the son of Roberto Rubio Torres and Monica Ojeda. He is in the second grade at Cartoogechaye Elementary School in Franklin, North Carolina.

Hope that through the network to help more health or economic needs a friend
Easy on the method used to help alleviate their financial burden while allowing family members restore their health,
Through the Internet at home, you can easily understand the cause ...
