A Lot of Slow to Grow.

I love Eve Merriam’s work. Here is one of my favorites, which I will be sharing with the teachers attending the Beginning Workshop Training that starts Monday.

A Lazy Thought
By Eve Merriam

There go the grownups
To the office,
To the store.
Subway rush,
Traffic crush;
Hurry, scurry,
Worry, flurry.

No wonder
Grown ups
Don’t grow up
Any more.
It takes a lot
Of slow
To grow.

Isn’t this so very true? It does take a lot of slow to grow . . . I love this reminder as I’m ready to step into a new school year.
