Hello there World! It’s been a while….
I apologize, friends. This fall was a pile
of school and work and muchos of lazy;
I wish I could say it’s just ’cause life’s crazy
But really, I’ll admit, my non-communication
has mostly been due to my edumacation.
People ask if I’m alive, do I still live in PG?
You’ve all hardly seen hide or (pony)tail of me.
I do still live here, and yes, I’m in school
(Not that I think it’s really that cool)
One semester to go and then two more years
To learn how to teach elementary-aged dears.
I took lots of courses from September to Christmas
Six, I’ll have you know, and none from my wish-list:
History of animals, and Hist of the world, also geography and writing
Education 101 and french intermediate (which really required some fighting)!
It was a big course load and not one to repeat
But I finished it all and now that was a feat!
Christmas was lovely and the break was just grand
I traipsed my way over to Alberta-land
and returned, after seeing oh-so many people
and then hibernated and caught up on my sleep-le.
Now classes have started; I’ve begun to emerge
And first on the to-do list was write this wee dirge.
See, I do like to write, and I do love you all
And it’s time I quit letting myself drop the ball
in all things of writing and this poor little blog.
Instead I’ve spent time gazing at ads about dogs
and that’s just not healthy, it’s just not productive
where this is at least sharing, and could be
And besides, one more thing – it was to me said
that end ryhmes are a crime, and end rhymes are dead.
My creative writing prof, that’s what he told me –
“End rhymes have no place in our modern poetry”
And that made me quite sad, it made me quite glum –
For I love end rhyme like a sailor loves rum.
So label me stubborn, say “obstinate girl”
Say “Listen to teachers, give other styles a whirl!”
I did try to behave (pretty much…mostly) in class
And he gave me a mark that was more than a pass
But now that time’s over, and now I am free,
And this little rebel is back, to be me!
