To Keep Watching - Poem by Hannah Shier

The one thing that made my day, today
He was handed a slip of paper
The one thing that made my day, today

The teacher's face blank and unreadable
The student's face pale and drawn with fear
The one thing that made my day, today
Until he read the paper

The one thing that made my day, today
The door shut closed behind the teacher
The one thing that made my day, today

All the other students turned back around
Except one
The one thing that made my day, today
And that one saw the thing that made her day

The one thing that made my day, today
The boy read the paper ... and he smiled.
