I Still Love My Teacher!

This morning I woke
To the news I was late!
My puppy was muddy.
I left open the gate.

Scoop chewed my homework.
My shoes were untied.
My lunch would be meatloaf
And spinach that’s fried.

When I got to my classroom
All frumpy and sad,
I was not in the mood
To do spelling or add.

Then a smile from my teacher
In her bright flowered dress,
Made me feel warm and fuzzy.
I let go of the stress.

Then I looked at her shoes –
One was tan, one gray-slate.
This morning she woke
To the news she was late!
