Ariel's poem I presented to her at her school

Ariel, a fifth grader, lived across the street from me sometimes with her grandparents. She convinced her school to ask me to visit her class. I did and I had the greatest time ever sharing poetry and stories with this class for a full class period. At the end I presented this framed poem to Ariel and got a big hug right there in the classroom. Ariel, I hope you are achieving your goals in life, enjoying your summer and that you will have a great Sophomore year. Your poet friend Robert


Fly Ariel, fly away with your dreams

to wondrous places and a

life that fulfills those dreams.

Fly Ariel with imagination

and hard work to live a life

filled with love for family

and friends and others

less fortunate than you.

Fly Ariel through books and

media to lean about things

never dreamed about.

Imagine Ariel what life

will be like when you are

seventy-five like me.

The changes from today

cannot be understood at this time.

Fly Ariel, but always with a kind heart

and a desire to make the world a better place.

Whatever you do and wherever you go,

Do your best and all will be well.

So, fly Ariel, fly away in thoughts

to your heart’s desire, but know

that reality will judge how well you fly.

      Thank you so much Lee, Ariel is a real trooper, coping with a life without a mother. Thank goodness for her grandparents, who love her very much.
