This is a poem that accompanied a school project done by middle daughter when she was in 7th grade. She had to make a mask depicting a Greek mythological figure and recite a poem about the same. She made a cool mask, and globe on a stick which she held up over her shoulder while wearing the mask and reciting the following composition:


When the raging war began,
Atlas chose the losing side,
His punishment was great,
Holding up the sky; his fate,
Impossible to any mortal man.

Bound was he to this eternal fate,
He could never escape to death,
Not a soul would even try,
As the centuries passed by,
To hold up this heavy weight.

I liked this blog. I taught creative writing to all grades and was amazed at the individual creative minds. I always though, “I wish I could write like that!” The individual creative minds helped build the USA. We must always remember that and allow children to be creative in our schools and homes.
