“Brown Island” by Liam Fox

Liam Fox (age 12)


In the middle of nowhere,
Away from the hustle and bustle,
Out in nature.
Tall trees,
Smelling the pine and moss,
Clear water,
Filled with life.
A retreat from the world,
This little island
Is my special place.

from 2017 Rattle Young Poets Anthology


Why do you like to write poetry?

Liam Fox: “I like writing poetry because you get to paint a picture in someone’s head and because it doesn’t have a specific structure. I like the freedom this gives me.”
