“Mini Poems” by Tianyue Xia

Tianyue Xia (age 9)


I want to make
the little white pearls of snow
into a necklace
for you.



Your eyes are like a clear lake
which reflects my life.



Now, the sky turns into
a girl
wearing a skirt made of
sunset glow.

from 2015 Rattle Young Poets Anthology


Why do you like to write poetry?

Tianyue Xia: “I feel the inpiration and can’t help writing. Sometimes, mom wants me to write poems. They’re funny. And they’re very beautiful, too.”
