Poetry Challenge #6 Winner!

Well, it was a close run down to the wire, but we have a winner for Poetry Challenge #6. Now, what made this particular challenge so special, was that both of our lead poems were written by kids and they were neck and neck until the end. Thus, for the first time, I am awarding a first and second place widget to our winners and posting both of their poems. These are some special kids, guys. They beat out all the adults!

And so our first place win goes to Noah Blevins for World of Words! Congratulations, Noah!

Our Second Place win goes to Abby Finch for Aliens! Congrats to you as well, Abby. I'm so proud of the both of you!

And now here are their poems!

World of Words (Noah Blevins)

Opening a world
Swirling, twirling thoughts
Words dancing across the many pages
Feel the words stealing you away to a new dimension
See things that you have not seen
Hear sounds unknown to all
Smell forests, mountains, valleys
Taste foreign fruits
Living the lives of others
Feeling their emotions
Close the world
Wondering about what was just explored,
Hungry for more words

Aliens (Abby Finch)

Connect the stars

Way past Mars

As far as the eye can see

I can see you

But can you see me
