Alex's poetry

It seems he thinks in words. Which makes him a natural at showing what he wants in words on paper with his own quirky style. Here are his two latest from our lesson today:


I was in a train,
near a plain.
Along with some grain,
from the plain,
coming to the train,
in the rain.

And my personal favorite for this week:

The Wagon

The dragon was pulling a wagon
down to the bay.
But the wagon was a-draggin'
so the wagon had to stay.

I love his use of slang this way, it seems very natural... and before this year, it was him mispronoucing words to make them fit... now it is him using words the way they are used in language.
