Again this year I am writing a poem a day to celebrate National Poetry Month. It's my FOURTH YEAR in a ROW of writing a poem a day for the A to Z Challenge. My theme this year, is signs I've photographed and poems to go with them.

Slow School Zone
We think we must give warning
There's a school that's moving slowly;
It isn't that the kids are slow
By no means oh, no, no-ly!
It's just the way the school proceeds
When going down the road;
No bus arrives to pick up kids -
The school picks up the load.
This mobile school goes door to door
Slowly motoring by,
Picking up the school children
From each home on the fly.
Students spend the day inside
As in the zone it roams,
And when at last the day is done
They hop out at their homes.
Watch out for the slow school zone -
No passing's allowed there;
So maybe you can find a route
that you don't have to share.

Here's my poem written on a Starbuck's napkin on Monday. Yes, I know. My husband gave me a notebook so I'd always have paper to write down poems. I forgot.
