Hughes, Oliver, and Parker

-"Thank You, Ma'am," by Langston Hughes is a short story that depicts a woman who sees a small bit of herself in a young boy; she knows the potential he holds and instead of reprimanding him for a bad act, she takes him in a shows him what he can aspire to be with honesty and hard work.
-Lisa Parker illustrates a speaker who has a rough time at school yet enjoying some of it; she truely wants to be home clearly shown by the way she describes everything so lovingly and with so much detail and care in the poem, "Snapping Beans."
-"Mindful," by Mary Oliver is a poem about appreciation of nature and everyday events, a poem that encourages the reader to realise how incredible simple things are and attempt to learn from them.
