"Hearts are Like Doors"
Hearts, like doors, will open with ease,
to very, very little keys,
And don't forget that two of these
Are "Thank you, sir" and "if you please!"
This poem teaches us that when people like you their "hearts will open with ease". When you are polite and grateful for what they do for you, they "open their hearts" to you.
This is a poem from the first grade book. Tomorrow, I will be sharing a poem from the 3rd grade book. I just love these books because they are written by a former home-schooler and are a lot more "home school friendly" when you are teaching multiple children at the same time. Everyone gets to participate and no one feels left out. In fact, because we put the poems on the walls, the children help one another and are eager to recite them anytime of the day.
