JK Rowling Just Retweeted A Child's Poem, And The Internet Loves It

By Jonna Ivin-Patton

Just when we think we can't love Harry Potter author, JK Rowling anymore, she goes and does something like this.

It all started when a pretty cool teacher, Kate Clanchy from Oxford, UK, shared the work of one of her students. A fifteen-year-old boy,  Louis, wrote a melancholy poem about waiting for his absent father. Clanchy tweeted it. 

 She captioned the tweet: 

 The kids always write the best poems after they've stopped listening to me. For example, I usually tell them to avoid rhyming couplets, because they govern the poem and tend to be comic - but this has heavy rhyme, and it's heartbreaking.
