Your poems

You are

You are as beautiful as the
You are as beautiful as a

You are as pretty as a petal
that makes me go crazy.

You are as sweet as candy
and as free as a bird.

You are as lovely as the sea
and as lovely as can be.

That's who you are:
God's child.

Ellie Fowler 11
Empire Bay, Australia


Lying innocently on a warm, flat stone
a splotch of paint on a canvas,
a child's hand on a father's lap.

Tangled protectively in soggy, green seaweed
a princess in a stringy gown,
a star that fell on Earth to sleep.

Tea green, sky magenta,
Cuddled at the bottom of the sea.
A seastar twinkles in its own special way.

When I wrote this poem. I thought about now all of us, just like the seastar shine in our own special way. And we all shine in Spirit, because we reflect God.

Estella von Cardinal, 12
Latchford, Canada
