Poor Little Goldfish
written by Melissa

Lizzie had a goldfish.
It seemed like one of us.
When it was Fishie's naptime,
we'd all be quiet.
Hush!
You never know
how much you love
until that love
is gone.
And so with fish.
Oh, how we wish
something had not gone wrong.
Lizzie bought a new fish.
It almost broke our hearts.
That's why we all agreed at once
to name the fish "Restart."
