Original poem, FREE poetry worksheet!
In honor of Poetry Month, here is a FREE poetry reading comprehension worksheet written by a National Board Certified Teacher’s…little sister. The worksheet and poem are very good!
My sister wrote “Math” to help my students with their poetry reading comprehension. It is an adorable poem about a romance that blossoms in math class. Really, it’s a shame that she wrote it just for the worksheet. I hope you and your students enjoy the math puns and the genuine emotion in the poem.

Your obtuse manner isn’t helped
By your acute smile,
And you’re a total square
From your toes to your hair roots.
I’m sorry, but you + me
Just doesn’t equate.
A simple problem, to which there are
Not one, not two, but
Still, you made point after point
While I kept feeding you the same lines.
I couldn’t make ends meet
And my life was
And there wasn’t a ray of sunshine to be had,
You were the only real number
I could call.
It all started to add up:
As I dialed your number,
All sines pointed toward you.
