Poetry, Please!

Here is the poem that I wrote and recited for the children at the Coffee House this morning.  Enjoy!

Just Like You
The fall brings warm days and cool nights and you,
With bright smiles and eager eyes.
Learning how to write a list and how to write freely,
And I start to think,
The world needs more poets like you.

As the cool nights and brilliant sunrises turn days colder and shorter
You start to speak about big ideas.
You rhyme and rap,
And I start to realize,
The world needs more poets like you.

Then the days change again and begin to grow longer and turn warmer,
You express yourselves openly, honestly and thoughtfully,
and in many different forms.
Each with your own strong and individual voice,
And I believe
That the world needs more poets like you.

And now, as you turn away from here,
And toward your next season,
Remember this;
I know that this is true,

The world needs more poets like you.
