Awesome poetry from Bob Dahl… Makes schooling fun! 🙂
It’s in the course of studying
‘rithmatic, readin’, and writin’
that critical thinkin’ will tighten
and a student will be enlightened,
for in ‘rithmatic, two plus two
is always four
and then there is more and more
leading to algebra, geometry,
trigonometry and calculus
and all that Einstein gifted us
and so much more
that helps us understand the
universe and galaxies galore
in language and symbols ever so terse.
In readin’ one seeks to comprehend
and be able to think things through
to the end.
“Ah, I think I understand
this metaphor and that simile,
and I do love the joy that
reading poetry gives to me.”
And when it comes to writin’
a well diagramed sentence is enlighten’n.
Nouns go here and verbs go there
and in-between and all over the place,
there are combiners, refiners,
definers like adverbs, adjectives
gerunds — so many modifiers.
It’s hard not…
