I Hear…

We’re surrounded by different sounds every day! For this week, our young poets at Howe thought about the sounds that color their lives. This post’s featured poet, Milani, describes the sounds of her life in a short and sweet way.

“Sound Poem”
by Milani, 4th grade

I hear the dog barking outside
I hear the bakery
I hear the egg cracking
I hear the zebra crunch
