James Dailey (age 10)

BIG SIS

My big sister is a little creepy
She leaves the faucet sometimes leaky
I think my big sister is Goth
She smells like honey and peanut butter
But somehow I still love her

from 2014 Rattle Young Poets Anthology

Why do you like to write poetry?

James Dailey: “Poetry allows me to write whatever I want unless I am in school.”
