Share your thoughts about this poem by Mary Oliver:

The Poet Dreams of the Classroom

I dreamed
I stood up in class
and I said aloud:

Teacher,
why is algebra important?

Sit down, he said.

Then I dreamed
I stood up
and I said:

Teacher, I'm weary of the turkeys
that we have to draw every fall.
May I draw a fox instead?

Sit down, he said.

Then I dreamed
I stood up once more and said:

Teacher,
my heart is falling asleep
and it wants to wake up.
It needs to be outside.

Sit down, he said.
