Dear Elizabeth Alexander from Ellen

Dear Ms. Alexander,

I listened to your poem, “Tending.” It made me feel lucky, to have a Mom to make a nice, warm breakfast. I, too, feel like it can take me anywhere and everywhere. I felt very moved in an indescribable way. It made me feel…warm inside. I noticed, that it had some of your own history, and your grandfather’s. I liked learning about your childhood.
