Old Time Toys Workshop
Choose a toy that calls to you…
If you were this toy dreaming to play,
what would you love to do?
Take a little time alone
with your toy.
Play, and you will find your verbs.
Marbles click-tick-tick in their tin,
sparkle and spin.
What unique details do you notice?
Can you imagine a moment for your toy?
Hearts engaged, writing flows.
Working from our family’s collection of old-time toys, students discover the fun of writing a poem
that springs from feeling.
