Piper Tales – Seeing Black And White – New Contest

Piper Tales – The Continuing Adventures of a Very Lucky Black and White Dog

Chapter 25

Last week Bill was struggling with an assignment to write a poem as part of his class’s participation in a statewide poetry contest.  While doing his history homework, something black and white quickly moved past his door and an idea for his poem began to form.

Black and White

By Bill Shellett
