Poem Recitation

For the month of February, we will recite the poem By Myself

By Myself

Eloise Greenfield

By Myself
When I’m by myself 
And I close my eyes 
I’m a twin 
I’m a dimple in a chin 
I’m a room full of toys 
I’m a squeaky noise 
I’m a gospel song 
I’m a gong 
I’m a leaf turning red 
I’m a loaf of brown bread 
I’m a whatever I want to be 
An anything I care to be 
And when I open my eyes 
What I care to be Is me.

Eloise Greenfield
