The Way to Walk

More poems from 2001, by Brooklyn elementary school students. Calvin's wish is mine too.

My senses react to my everyday life
I love to walk
My senses have different reactions
to everything I see
My hands react by touching
almost every curious thing
I see tree bark and leaves of pretty colors
My nose reacts by smelling
almost every beauty of a flower
My ears react by hearing
almost every song the songbirds sing
My eyes react by seeing
almost every person I know
rushing to go somewhere that
I do not know of
My mouth reacts by tasting
the fresh spring air
My senses react to my everyday life
and I love to walk.

A walk is like
a stroll in the park
A walk is like a summer
breeze with some cool
AC.  Walks are fun in the
summertime and you always
wish to walk with amazement.
