Meadow Mouse

Written By: Marileta Robinson - Nov• 01•13
When my sons were little, we loved to read Dr. Seuss's ABC out loud. That man knew how to celebrate sounds! Each poem played with a different letter of the alphabet. One of my favorite lines is "four fluffy feathers on a Fiffer-Feffer-Feff!" (Guess which letter that was for.) This poem was inspired by Dr. Seuss. I wanted to play with the sound of "m," using lots of words that REPEAT the sound to create a mood--sort of hummy and dreamy. Pick a letter and decide what kind of mood you'd like to create with it. meadow mouse
