We had found an antique top hat that in it's day must have been tremendously elegant. We imagined it to be a top hat belonging to Abe Lincoln and wondered about the stories it could tell. I wrote this poem to accompany our Abe Lincoln musical. It was performed by 50 4th graders who created adorable, dramatic motions to coincide with each phrase of the poem. The reciting of this poem with spectacular motions by the 2 classes of 4th graders was fantastic and truly brought down the house!
