Zoey Sheffield (age 6)

Peace and Rain

The raindrops fall
on all that is quiet.

A soft wind blows
a tear off your face.

The cents of a penny
is less than your love.

A good night.

Why do you like to write poetry?

Zoey Sheffield: “I like to write poetry because it’s beautiful and graceful and soothing. I love reading it, too. And I love getting ideas from my dad.”
