Snakes in the Grass

In school this morning Tate was assigned to write a poem.
He didn't think it would go well.
He was wrong.

Tate being Tate, this is what I got :D


Snakes in the Grass

Little snakes in the grass
Slither quickly, slither fast.
Should an eagle get you
You would be the past.

Quickly now
There is need to rush!

An eagle swoops
An eagle dives,
Quickly, slither for your lives!

Talons gleam
Little snakes scream
And dive for the brush.
All in a rush
the eagle flies away -
nothing but thorns today.

I'm with you, Melanie! And he's got three of them in a bucket in the back yard. He's promised to return them to the wild tomorrow. In the meantime he's trying to convince me that the tiny one, with the red stripes (instead of the usual yellow) is "cute".

Well, not by MY definition of "cute"! But interesting...

As I writing teacher, I give him an A+!! Good job!

Now you need to frame it with a picture of a snake and the date. Great job.
