Friday Poem

Silo Solo is by Minnesotan, Joyce Sutphen.

I'm not sure why her father sang when he was working in the silo but I like to think some of it is because of the sound inside an enclosed space. I had a good friend who taught kindergarten. As you know kindergartens have bathrooms. Many of her kids often sang inside that space, loving the sound. I loved the story. She often had to call to them and/or knock to come back to class..

I also have another reason for the choice because I know a barn in Minnesota, one now restored that has a silo inside it. This suggests the barn was built around it as it is completely invisible from the outside. No singing in it yet, at least that I've heard about.
