Easton's first poems

Easton wrote his first two poems last week as we completed a beginning poetry unit.  His first one was about Oscar, our dog:

Oscar is very fat. 
He pees on a mat.

He is a boy.  What can I say?  This is the stuff rolling around in the heads of little boys made of "snakes and snails and puppy dogs tails". 

His second poem was more polite:

I like building snowmen when it's cold,
And bundling up when I'm told.

My boy was quite proud of himself.
