Has Anyone Seen the Fourth Graders

Has anyone seen the fourth graders lately?
They arrive in public built in full grown men and women foundations
wearing adult shoes in sizes eight, nine and ten.

They make me feel dwarfish,
not petite, since I weigh more now than
I did when I delivered children, but I weigh more than most of them.

I know  three who are outstandingly large - could be
sumo wrestlers if they take women, as they are all females.

Be prepared to feel small and dwarfish.

They do seem to grow taller, faster then kids did in the past. Not only that but, they are often so "techie" that they could build their own computers.

They outsmart us almost every day, every step of the way, and they are taller too. I just thought of a new poem. So thanks for that M.L.! I just popped off this page for five minutes and wrote it too.
