Poet-Tree by CassidyInspired by National Poetry Month, Brave Writer student Cassidy (a winner in last month’s Poetry Contest!) created a “Poet-Tree” filled with her poems

Brave Writer so enjoyed sponsoring and co-hosting the Children’s Poetry Celebration and Contest! A big THANK YOU to all who participated!

Here are the winning poems in each age category:

4-6 Year Olds

A Love For Horses by Alyssa

Graceful, Herbivore
Galloping, Nuzzling, Cantering
I Love All Horses.

7-9 Year Olds

Flower Sonnet by Cassidy

My oh, my a daisy
standing in this black haze.
Someone must be crazy
To plant this plant unfazed.

My oh, my a lily
Standing in the wild.
Someone is knocked silly,
Someone is a child.

My oh, my a blue star
Standing in this tarred yard.
Someone is real bizarre
And thinks he is a bard

Now you’ve heard these curses
Bring in the plant nurses.

10-12 Year Olds

Words by Rachel

Every night, when there is not a single sound
Words from books come alive, move around
Quietly, so there is no catastrophe
They come out and show their personality

“Lively” bounces right off the page
Dancing, while having a big smile on its face
“Shy” simply finds a corner and hides
Afraid to be seen by human eyes

“Curious” inspects everything everywhere
Hoping for something exciting to share
“Arrogant” sniffs and demands praise
But the only one who notices is “Amazed”

“Bored” sighs again and again
Waiting for something that interests him
“Anxious” races around the room
Shouting that everyone is doomed

That’s only a few, but I wanted you to know
About what happens when your eyes are closed WINNER
So the next time you can’t seem to find any sleep
Go to your bookshelf…what do you see?

Thanks to Preschool Powol Packets for organizing the event! Hop over to their site to see more fabulous entries!
