2011 Kinnelon Poetry Contest Results that Emma won first place for her recitation of her original poem, Adventures.
I thought I would share it with you here...
by Emma Whittemore
Adventures can be anywhere.
They can be in a dark and eerie lair.
Adventures can be really brave
In a dingy, dank and dark bat cave.
Adventures might be up a tree,
Maybe even on your knee.
You must have some time to spare.
As sweet as a lion,
As quick as a lime,
As sour as a sloth,
As dainty as an elephant,
As hard as honey,
As shaky as lace,
As slow as steel,
As playful as an earthquake,
As noisy as gold,
As fierce as a cricket,
As cunning as a canary,
As bright as a badger,
These are the adventures I want to have.
