Give Me

Give me the fresh air you breathe.

Give me a duck that walks all night.

Give me a boot to wear.

Give me Abraham Lincoln in his chair.

Give me a Boom Box so I can hear.

Give me a teacher holding my hand.

Give me a man cheering for hope.

Give me an arrow to show which way to go.

Give me a woman holding a baby.

Give me the number, counting five.

Give me the water for my boat.

Give me a bird flying through the air.

Give me all the good things that life can bring.

By Troishel, 4th Grade
