 My entry was inspired by springtime and the colorful hats my students wear!

A striped fuschia hat!

Once it flew on a sycamore leaf,

The cool breeze sent it to a field,

A bunch of hens was after it.

A swallow grabbed it,

Now, on the almond tree,

The hat speaks of its travels,

”Come with me! There’re so many places to see!”
