looking at the globe with Lucy

Blue crooked line, wending through desert,
Tight state lines, heedless of mountains,
Ridiculous lines fixing ebbing seashore,
Drawn on maps, stilling ocean's movement
Magic lines, drawing us into our world.

Arbitrary lines that yet seem true.
The pretend world igniting real interest--
the globe does its job well!

(Sometimes I leave really weird comments.)

This is great! What a cool way to describe a globe, and a great activity with a little one.

I love globes ~ my dad has always had one and we used to look at it together. When I was little I thought that I'd actually see the lines if I went to the borders!
