Our final poem was illustrated last week. It is one of my favorites, by my favorite poet, Langston Hughes. In part:
Hold fast to dreams,
For if dreams die
Life is a broken-winged bird,
That cannot fly.
That is my biggest wish for your children - to hold fast to their dreams. They are capable of great things! To represent this wish, each child will be receiving this little homemade token from me this morning. I hope it reminds them to be kind, to try hard, and to make themselves proud. Fly!
