My Heart

SnowheartMy heart is full of my first snowman and snow-angels deep in the snow.

My heart is full of making new ideas and bubbles that pop in my head

like a phone that just had rung.

My heart is full of hugging and holding my brother who had just been born.

My heart is full of my first steps.

My heart is full of my first laugh and hug.

My heart is full of my first best friend.

My heart is full of going to my first day of school.

My heart is full of my brother crawling to the couch, crying and laughing so loud.

My heart is full of animals:

Like the lion represents courage, the monkey represents joy, and the crocodile represents seriousness.

It feels like I’m one part of each of them.

By Christopher, 3rd grade
