Siena Poetry


Siena came home with a bunch of materials from school in May, including a fair amount of creative writing she’s been doing. Some of these are just to precious not to share.

How to Be a Kitten

Must be ready for a friend
Never love a dog
Pounce on anything that shifts a tiny bit
Sleep anytime, anywhere
Have to know how to wrestle
Always and forever love your human.

How to Be a Desk

Always stand still
Open your mouth often
Must keep your owners supplies safe
Never try to talk
Don’t stare at the lights
And don’t ever push the ball out from under you.

In her 3rd-grade class, every student sat on an exercise/yoga ball instead of a chair, hence the reference to ball in the final line of the second poem.
