The Muddy Puddle

The Muddy Puddle
By Dennis Lee

I am sitting
In the middle
Of a rather Muddy Puddle,
With my bottom
Full of bubbles
And my rubbers
Full of Mud.

While my jacket
And my sweater
Go on slowly
Getting wetter
As I very
Slowly settle
To the Bottom
Of the Mud.

And I find that
What a person
With a puddle
Round his middle
Thinks of mostly
In the muddle
Is the Muddiness of Mud.

Words of the Week

Grade 1+2
Focus: double letters before an ending like er, ing, y on root words (the double consonant helps the vowel before it stay "short")

*bonus word: muddiness
(The class asked me for harder words this week!)
