What Has Lost
Even though my walls quite tall,
They did quake a little.
Even though my nerves quite strong,
They did shake a little.
Even though my heart quite whole
It did break a little.
And death, quite powerful,
Did take a little.
Believe it or not, this was written by an 8th grade student of mine.
I'm pretty sure she gets it. (that whole "writing" thing I've been longing for them to grasp)
