Standing out in the night…poetry from our youth, a true gift

Poetry is a gift we give each other and ourselves - 
no matter if we read the poetry of others or write our own.

Today I'm truly honored to share three poems 
from my friend Adelia (age 13, 9th grade)

Standing out in the night,

The tell-tale roar

And gentle, soothing light

Reflect on the

Loyal eyes of the old dog

Illuminating the landscape

Giving life to the storm

He shivers, cold while his

Tail tucks between his legs

And he howls to

Notify his master of the

Danger in the night

His master

Urges him to be quiet,

telling him to give it a

Rest, but the dog doesn’t understand

Ruff, ruff, ruff, right into the incoming Catastrophe

And he doesn’t stop ’till it hits

In the morning,

Nothing is left and

Everyone knows of the hurricane in the

Starlight

Such a rare happiness, the

Mother hugs her child after

It recovers from the

Life-threatening

Emergency

Running free,

Everything has beauty

See it in the trees, the

People, and the animals

Everything has a purpose, all

Connected for all of

Time

Over there, the

Finch builds a

Nest, expectant of new chicks

Antelope travel

Together, searching out the

Utopia of predator-free lands

Resting in the shade,

Elephants flap their ears

And people watch this all,

Not a scratch on them

Delve into the

Lives of animals

Immerse yourself,

Find your purpose

Everything has one

And you are no exception

Neither life nor

Death changes this fact

You must find your place, be it

Over the next obstacle or

Under a trial

Respect is key in

Survival

Everything knows this

Life goes on as a

Family
