Kaye Marion Campbell (age 8)

WINTER

The winter winds
blow ooooooooooooo
oooooooooo snow falls
falls taptap my
nose is red my tongue
is stuck but most
of all my toes go
yuck.

Why do you like to write poetry?

Kaye Marion Campbell: “Because it expresses me and it helps my mind go free and my imagination be better because poetry is really fun and you don’t have to write periods or things like that but I choose to and people can just write their own way.”
