I’m posting two poems today, one for
younger and one for older kids. 
The first one is a playful science poem.
The second one is from my book 
I Am Wings: Poems About Love.  

H2O

The recipe
         for water is
the same as
         it’s always been:

two parts
         hydrogen
one part
         oxygen.

Two-to-one
         that’s the rule
to make a water
         molecule.


First Kiss

I’ll never forget
that empty barn
smell of dry hay
those long columns
of dusty light

for one whole minute
you and I breathed
the same breath
