Winter Conversation

Dandelion in winter
Has lost its head
It did not roll down a hill
Nor drown in an ocean
Though the ocean may have
Longed for it
Sumac seeds and wildflower,
Pine cone and pine needle,
All watched
And said nothing.

–Shaun Perkins

My junior class collected things on the ground outside the other day and made poems out of them.
