Because she thinks she’s no good at writing
Because she sat and worked her hardest on this
Because she’d rather have been doing something (anything) else
Because we are all proud of her
Because it was freezing out there on Cracken Edge waiting for inspiration
Because she’s sad that it’s Monday tomorrow
Because her big sister told me I should publish it

The poem which Small Daughter has written as homework.
