PTSW: Metaphor


Morning is
A new sheet of paper
For you to write on.

Whatever you want to say,
All day,
Until night
Folds it up
And files it away.

The bright words and the dark words
Are gone
Until dawn
And a new day
To write on.

by Eve Merriam

This extended metaphor is a good one for early in the year when we can talk about the magic of the school year - it ends: you get a fresh start each fall! And, in a way, a fresh start each grading period. And, yes, in a way, "... a new day to write on" every morning.
