Slate

Written by: Jon A Cavanaugh

I would make puzzles from slate as a boy
This marvelous rock was my favorite toy
I'd shatter it (gently) the fragments were few
I'd then gather them up from the avenue
I'd reassemble the rock to its original state
Then I'd continue my search for more slabs of slate
I was entertained by this unique stone
My favorite puzzles I would take home
