He smiled!

15 Mar

Unknown

On Friday, I wrote about a student who wrote used his Writer’s Notebook time to write about how much he hated my class. I was trying, unsuccessfully, to write a villanelle. Well, today, he smiled, so I wrote a villanelle to celebrate.

He smiled a bit, today, in class

The Boy who hates Humanities

The other students cheered en masse

 

They would not give his turn a pass

And so, his tablemates to please

He smiled a bit, today, in class

 

They would not hear his mumbling sass

Not those happy personalities

The other students cheered en masse

 

And so he did it, bold as brass

And uttering no profanities

He smiled a bit, today, in class

 

Since he didn’t do it to harass

Or assuage onlookers’ vanities

The other students cheered en masse

 

He smiled and ended the impasse

Of his dark negativities

He smiled a bit, today, in class

The other students cheered en masse
