In September 2019, our grandson Joseph, who was then 10, had to write a poem for school. He is an amazing kid, and he wrote an amazing poem. So amazing, in fact, that I am publishing it again…..
Our grandson Joseph is 10 years old. He wrote this poem as a school assignment.
I Am From
By Joseph McLain
I am from my favorite cat Ellie
From puddles and trees during springtime in Montpelier.
I am from an old green house and a beautiful neighborhood
I am from overgrown hostas that always seem to be looking at me.
I am from hot chocolate and chapter books
From Hibbert and McLain.
I am from big celebrations and different cultures like Polish and Scottish.
From Taco Tuesday and Pride.
I am from Great Grandma Wilma, a Cookie Monster cake
And from my great grandparent singing to me.
From my youngest, but first to die cat.
I am from those moments, the sad ones, the hard ones and the happy ones
that is why life is so amazing.
I couldn’t be prouder of this boy.
