Finding a Rhyme and a Reason

Embark on a journey of teaching and learning with Ms. Hayes' class at Georgetown K-8, Savannah, Georgia

“Where I’m From” – It’s “wicked good”!

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Today in Mr. Naughton’s 3rd period class, we took a moment to allow students to create a little magic with their adaptations of George Ella Lyon’s “Where I’m From” poem. Madison has consented to me posting her poem. I am hoping more students will share theirs as well. Thank, Madison!

Where I’m From

I am from ice cold mornings
to hot, steamy, red lobster dinners,
I am from where the snow piles high and the fire glows at night,
I am from collecting sea shells on the Rocky Coast beaches
to roaming around with the black bears,
I am from the Pinetree state and it is wicked good!
I am from Maine
That’s where I’m from.

    I am from empty beer cans and suffocating cigarette smoke
    Where I come from my bed time is infinite but my sleep is limited
    I come form dirty streets and card board box houses
    where I come from gunshots are my alarm clocks and window pane smashes are my snooze buttons
    I come from the real hood.

    I come form chipping birds and brick build mail box houses
    Where i come from dinner is at 7:00 sharp
    I come from a community of poise and posture
    Where I come from laughter is the only form of communication
    I come from idealistic life

    I come from a background of struggling my ancestors build houses from imagination lived in them then sold them to the gullible
    Where I come form its okay to dream as long as its not contagious
    I come from a place where people will slaughter to buy a killer
    Where I come from my parents try hard to shield us from the outside world when they don’t know that they are only making it more visible
    I come from the real world.
