Micala's Poem

My Delightful Poem about Winter on the Island
by Micala, age 12, 6th grade, Washington Island

I am from the island of beauty
I am from the brightest star
I am from the snow world
I am so very far
I am from the glistening ice
I am from the snowy white trees
I am from the island of beauty
I am from the island of love
I am from Washington Island
The place that shines above.
