“The Waiter” by Sophia Buss

Sophia Buss (age 6)


The clock is ticking,
the clock is tocking.
I am waiting for someone
like you.
You’re like a soft ocean
that wants me.
The breeze blows to an island
and that very island
sadly sails away.

Why do you like to write poetry?

Sophia Buss: “I really like to write. It’s fun to just let the words out of your mind and the feelings out of your hands.”
