Space.




Space is a sort of negative word
It’s nothing or at least that’s what I have heard
There’s space in our house but not much I agree
There is space in the garden, except for that tree.

There has to be space if I walk anywhere
And lots of space lies just under my hair
There is space in the sky, and space on the ground
Space between homes, though not much, I’ve found.

Space between cars that are parked on our street
Space between some of my teeth, which is neat!
I don’t think the world could go on without space
I know I need lots when I’m running a race.

So space is important thought it’s nothing it seems
I’ll think more about it, perhaps in my dreams.
One day I may be a builder of respect
Being paid to put space between things I erect.

Wyn! How'd you come up with stuff like this? I LOVE it!!! Send it to your local newspaper :) Everyone should read this one. Well done, my friend.

We could learn a lot from crayons. Some are sharp, some are pretty and some are dull, Some have weird names , and all are different colors, but they all have to live in the same box.............................................
