two short reverso poems!

Standard

OH MY GOODNESS THESE ARE SO HARD TO MAKE BUT I DID IT!!!! Basically the poem reads one way forewords, and has an opposite meaning when read backwards. the form was started by a woman named Marilyn Singer, who has written two books of these poems for children. Her husband suggested they be called “reverso” poems, and that is exactly what she did. The books are  absolutely genius-check them out! The first book is called “mirror, mirror” and the second is called “follow follow”.
