Embers: Poem Embers

Lesson: Opinions.
Need: A poem.
Prep: None.
Directions: Read a favorite poem and discuss what it means to everyone. Post the poem in a central area or give copies to everyone.

Here you can find my favorite poem. Other popular ones you can use are poems from Shel Silverstein's Where The Sidewalk Ends or Falling Up.

So why do we do it?
What good is it?
Does it teach you anything?
Like determination? Invention? Improvisation?
Foresight? Hindsight? Love? Art? Music? Religion?
Strength or patience or accuracy or quickness or tolerance or
which wood will burn and how long is a day and how far is a mile
And how delicious is water and smoky green pea soup?
And how to rely
On your
Self?
-Terry & Renny Russell
