I'm back in the classroom again, have written a number of times about it, the pleasure of being with students all day, and the challenges of moving into the rhythm of teaching full time again. Today, I'd like to share my writing with students about a perfect morning.

Glad To Be Back
Mozart helps us nestle--
Gray clouds hover outside,
sleet spits at the windows;
small murmurings and
brain clouds float inside.
A chair scrapes. Someone coughs.
A student sighs; I wonder why.
They sit at computers,
Quiet voices wing in from the hall:
“Hey, great to see you, how are you all?”
Time to move, and re-sharpen pencils
for workshop gathering at the carpet.
Sharing words, sharing dreams.
Everyone's still thinking hard,
even before lunch.
