One of the fourth graders wrote this version of Dream Deferred by Langston Hughes in class today. I had to share...
What happens to a dream deferred?
Does it fall continuously through the dark?
Or, does it slide around like sap in the bark?
Does it jump and move trying to be free?
Or, does it get afraid and then flee?
Maybe it just mopes.
Or does it suddenly get tied to ropes?
Sort of love my job!!!!
