Guilty as charged...

This poem was written by Brianne McPhearson, 7th grader at Shining Mountain Waldorf School.


Waldorf Moms
Waldorf moms wear cotton socks
Woolen sweaters, Birkenstocks.
Waldorf moms have long full skirts,
Big silk scarves and layered shirts.
Waldorf moms have fluffy hair,
They’re kind and firm and make you share.
Waldorf moms drive Volvo cars
And talk of fairies, gnomes, and stars.
Waldorf moms love Waldorf meetings
Where they greet with Waldorf greetings.
Waldorf moms make Waldorf dolls
From purest wool and cotton balls.
Waldorf moms drink lots of tea
Which has been grown organically.
Waldorf moms serve fruits and meats.
Veggies, grains, and not much sweets.
Their favorite word is “nourishing.”
They love to hike and knit and sing.
They leave the gluten out of bread
And make you spend twelve hours in bed.
And if you fall and scrape your knee
They give you rescue remedy!

Very nice. Those Waldorf kids are an astute bunch.

LOL! Well I've never owned a pair of Birkenstocks in my life, I can't drive and I don't wear long skirts (although this might be because years ago in a busy waiting room my eldest, then about 2, crawled under my long skirt and then stood up taking the skirt with him, arms raised above his head... *sigh*) but I recognise much of the rest (and after all we're 'waldorf-inspired' not strictly Waldorf. I agree with Aggie though, a rather astute poem.

Oh I love it! It makes me want to be a Waldorf Mom... I'm increasingly excited about this play group we'll start in the fall.
