Lunchroom Poem

The Carnegie Center staff placed a whiteboard in our kitchenette, where staff make their lunches. The board contained the following prompt: "Write about a children's book or books that impacted you." Staffers each wrote a few lines. Here was the result:

Eggs and ham, green as the tree leaves
Under which Harriett spies
And wild things roar.
While the Patriot lads saved old Falmouth
I was digging holes in the dirt
Eating a bowl full of mush under the moon
While we had a no good, very bad day
As Amy lay dying.

We have so much fun at work! Can you guess the children's books to which the lines allude?
Happy Guessing!
