Best Poem of C.J. Heck

A Child’s Masterpiece (Children)
Today I found a can of paint.
The paintbrush was there, too.
Mommy must have left it
when her painting was all through.

It was such a pretty color,

It made me think of pretty things
that same color in my head.

I painted rainbows from the sky,
and hearts . . .

Toe Jam (Children)
Can anybody tell me
what's that stuff between my toes?
My daddy says it's toe jam
but I don't think he really knows.

It's icky and it's fuzzy
and I think I'll tell my dad...
I wouldn't put it on my bread
if it was the only jam we had! . . .
