Pete's class is too busy this month for me to do a presentation early enough for them to continue to celebrate poetry for the whole month. I did tell her teacher that I'll do the presentation at any time, even if it's not National Poetry Month. It is pretty late in the year, though...
That being said, I need to tell you about
The Monster Under My Bed
There’s a monster under my bed.
It’s furry with big orange paws.
Did you see it? The tip of a whisker?
The orange tail? The claws?!
It is really very frightening.
I’m scared! Oh, what should I do?
I can hear it growling
And moving around under there too!!
Wait a minute... Hold on…
What do you think? How about that?
The growling sounds a lot like purring…
Silly me! It’s just my CAT!
