1st Grade Peace Poem
(mentor text: Peace is an Offering By: Annette Le Box)
Peace is an offering
A book or new shoes
Playing a video game
Spreading good news
Peace is gratitude for fluffy things
My bed at night, and a baby bird’s wings
A trip to the pool, a bike ride for ice cream
Playing board games, supporting our team
Peace is holding onto one another
Peace is the words you say to a mother
What is for lunch?
Can we go to the zoo?
Do you love me a bunch?
Can I read to you?
Will you leave me cheerful notes?
Will you calm my fears?
Will you give me hugs
To dry away my tears?
You might find peace while reading a book before nap
Or cuddling up to watch a movie on mom’s lap
Peace helps us come together
Even in bad weather
It’s when I fall down
And a friend helps me up
It’s when I’m feeling sad
And then I snuggle with my pup
Helping to look for something that is lost
Offer a stuffed animal to hug tight
Maybe even keep it all through the night
Learn something new
Visit someone who is far
May peace walk beside you
Wherever you are
