Hughes, Oliver, & Parker

“Mindful” by Mary Oliver calls for us to recognize the beauty and wonder of things that we see everyday and questions how one can use these “common” things to grow wiser.  

The poem “Snapping Beans” by Lisa Parker describes how a girl can overcome talking about how she is really feeling to her grandma about her life away at school.

“Thank You, Ma’am” by Langston Hughes tries to help people understand that nothing good can come from doing wrong, and in the stories case, it would have been much better to ask for help instead of acting wrongly.
