Loved this and it brought back so many memories and I have to admit, some of the exact same thoughts of being forever caught on that flagpole. I think you captured the voice of the 3rd grader perfectly.

Love your title! I've heard stories of this happening.. you've made it so much fun. This was my favorite stanza, "Oh, the pain, -- humiliation, -- now what was I to do? -- My tongue was held a captive -- by an evil, unseen glue." Wonderful creativity in this poem!!!
Can you believe my little brother actually did this, too? What a darling poem and you managed to include every piece of winter wear in it. I used to think it took more time getting ready to play in the snow than to actually play in it! What wonderful memories and you've done a great job in pulling them all together in a colorful, adorable piece. Kudos!
What a charming poem! It brought forth such childhood winter memories. I had my own funeral planned, too! They'd all be sorry.
I really enjoyed this poem and yes, it brought back many memories for me as well. It actually sounded like a little kid would talk- nice job.
Too cute! Made me laugh and I needed that tonight. Thank you for this wonderful poem full of whimsy and delight.
Very entertaining piece! Enjoyed it!
