An interactive poem about mummies


[Above: Cedar’s drawing of a mummy.]

My nephew Cedar, who is four years old, was over for Easter this weekend, and he wrote me a new poem about mummies, complete with picture (see above). This is a special poem, as it requires audience involvement. Indeed, after just a few lines about mummies, Cedar told me that “maybe other people can help finish it”. So: Does anyone have further poetic thoughts about mummies? If so, please add them in the comment section.


By Cedar Van Tassel

Mummies are
a funny shape
Long ago evil
humans wrapped
up for display.
