Summer Wind
Victoria, Age 12, Greenville, TN
                      Earth soft and damp under my feet
Ants tickling my heels
The sun is scorching my back
And burning my arms
Stinging my hair like a flame

A strong whiff of wind
Releases my pain
It gives me a break from the heat
The trees bow and kneel side to side
And clap their branches in thanks

The weeds they rustle by the trees
They tickle one another
And rub against each other
Merry is their laughter
Like the ocean slapping the sand
On a calm sunny day
