Month of Poetry – First – Children’s #Poem – #MoP14

14 Jan

This prompt, FIRST, was received from Shannon Abercrombie’s Start the Year Off Write Challenge’s guest author, David Harrison. An award-winning author, Mr. Harrison has written 77 children’s books and offers a monthly writing prompt on his blog called Word of the Month Poetry Challenge.

Written off the top of my head:

First, he yelled and cried.

Tears ran down his face.

Then he ran inside,

He had lost the race.


Who knew Mom was right?

Spinach made me strong!

Felt like I could run all day.

Eat greens, you can’t go wrong!
