Chanukah Parenting Highlight

/
Comments0
When my daughter Chana was nine, I did some homeschooling with her. She wrote a poem about Chanukah and made beautiful cards by pasting her poem and a Rothko image back to back. That afternoon meant a lot to me. It’s still one my parenting highlights.

Here’s her poem

Chanuka

Oil,
Greasy gold.
Eight lights shine
and dance and flicker
in front of the mezuza.
Happily, gratefully, we light the menora.
Spin, spin little draidel, spin.
Quick! Don’t miss it!
Take a latke.
Greasy, gold
Oil

And here’s the Rothko

Rothko Number 19
