The White Checked Curtain

So much depends upon

the white curtain

Checked with

red and blue

That gives us


To help us listen

to our own hearts.

Inspired By: Hate That Cat by Sharon Creech and Red Wheelbarrow  by William Carlos Williams.

  1. Wow Laura! I’m impressed…I love Sharon Creech. Have you read Walk Two Moons? It’s mine and Liz’s favorite Creech book– Huzzah, Huzzah!

  2. Wow, Laura, WAY cool post and even cooler poem. I used to write poetry all the time and then got away from it for some reason, but you have inspired me to try again! I haven’t read Love that Dog or Hate that Cat, but I did like Walk Two Moons, The Wanderer, and Absolutely Normal Chaos. I know you’re liking Creech now, but who’s your favorite author?

  3. What a great poem to capture the process and more importantly this historic election – historic no matter how of turns out. I said it when I first saw you speak at WNYPLP and I will say it again, you are and will continue to change the world!

  4. Laura,
    I am so proud of you and everything you’ve accomplished. Your poem really got to the heart of what it means to vote . I feel so inspired, and I can’t wait to work with you and your mom on Nov. 14.

  5. I love the new twist you’ve added!

  6. Loved the poem see you later.
