Start Stop Poem

Leave a comment


After reading Twilight Comes Twice to my class as a springboard they wrote Start Stop poems, which are kind of like eating Lays potato chips, it is hard to write just one. We did Without Transportation, Without Fractions, and Without Quadrilaterals. They were pumped!

Without quadrilaterals
there would be no blocks, bricks, or books.
We’d have no dollar bills, post-it notes,
or computer screens.
What would we do without walls, windows,
cell phones?
Notebooks, sidewalks, football fields
and basketball courts would be no more.
Our world would be not be in the same shape
Without quadrilaterals.
