Couplets are not easy, let me tell ya! I definitely do not like being held back by a word or line count.
This is a couplet about my family’s newest puppy. She is about 6 months old now, but this picture was taken on her first night home. She was exhausted from playing with everyone and settled herself in for a nice, long nap!

I swear, this poem is the story of my life. I am constantly making copies, coming back to my room, putting them down, and promptly forgetting where they are. I end up slowly getting my kids started while I walk around the room, hiding my panic, but eyes darting everywhere looking for that ever-elusive pile! I usually end up finding it, but I know the kids see right through my act. :)
Spelling Test/Lost Copies
While I hand out the lined paper, please number your papers 1-22
for our spelling test.
Where are the spelling lists? I know they are around here somewhere
Remember to write neatly. You should include your heading.
We will start in one minute.
I have no idea where the lists are! I know i copied them. I came back in here afterwards.
Where could they be? Did I put them on the shelf?
Yes, we are starting in one minute. I am just giving everyone a second to number their paper fully.
I know I always start right away, John. Today I am waiting.
WHERE ARE THEY? I can’t just make up spelling words. And the kids clearly know I am stalling.
That I am bluffing. Where could they…….
There they are! Phew!
Number one is monstrous….
I will definitely pay more attention the next time I put down copies.
Number 2, disastrous.
