Nicholas Chritton (age 7)

DREAMS

One sunny day I asked the ground: “How long have you been sitting here?”
And the ground said: “I do not know. It is rather boring. I wish I could be up in the sky.”
I said: “How about I tie balloons to you, then you can float away.”
And the ground said: “Sure.”
So I did and we floated away.

Why do you like to write poetry?

Nicholas Chritton: “I like poetry because poetry is fun to write and because it can be funny.”
