Where does our writing take us?

Now that my second and third graders have been writing poems for four months, I asked them where exactly do they go when they sit down to write a poem?

When I'm Writing a Poem

Where I am when I'm
writing a poem I'm slaying
a Wii. When I was in
Ohio. Me if I was a
caveman. Me if I was
Santa. If I was a S.W.A.T.
team or a police driving a
car. If I had a million dollars
and a butler.

In school, we write nonsense
In poetry we let our emotions
go when I'm in poetry
I feel happy when I'm writing
a poem, I feel I'm actually
in it. When I write
I feel I'm changing the
world. When I go to feel
it, I shiver so does my brain.
It's fun you should try
it.
