The Desk
By Whitney Heck
Genre: Poetry Level: Elementary 4-6
Year: 2000 Category: Margaret Mielke Memorial Poetry Award

In the desk, the wild desk,
There are books about
here and there.
There are papers flying
and pencils poking
Erasers erasing everywhere.
The rulers measure everything,
don't stop until they're done.
Markers marking and binders
What should I do with this wild
Should I run?
