The poet, Gabriel Fitzmaurice, comes to visit.

Today Gabriel Fitzmaurice came to our school to talk to us about writing poems and he told us some stories and riddles. His poems were really funny and he told us stories about his children when they were younger.  He also told us about his years of teaching and about visiting other schools around Ireland.  He went into each classroom and read some of his poems. When he had finished going to each classroom, we all went into Ms.Tannian’s room to get pictures taken with Gabriel. When they finished taking pictures, Grace thanked Gabriel for coming to see us and for reading some poems to us. He also signed the school copies of his book and the visitor book. We really enjoyed listening to Gabriel’s poems.
