Adventures: Kinnelon Poetry Recitation

Adventures: Kinnelon Poetry Recitation
[Warning: proud parent moment ahead!]  You may remember from 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.
Adventures are...

Kinnelon Poetry Recitation Contest 2011As 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.

[Note the image above where Emma puntuates her "These are the adventures I want to have" comes from the May 11, 2011 issue of Suburban Trends which, unfortunately, is not available digitally. The article is titled "Stepping up and supporting poetry."]

I am so loving Emma's poem! The whimsy of youth and unrestrained's quite stunning, a Chagall!
"Noisy like gold" - unbelievable!
Tell Emma she's got it going on! Fantastic!
