For Children

Bryson D. Wiese

I am From

2010 3rd-4th Grade Poetry Honorable Mention

I am from
The skyscrapers of New York to
The Fire Tower at Gipsy Trail;

I am from
Greenbergís Bakery to
Georgeís Diner

I am from
The dark ravine of Wall Street to
The valleys of Putnam;

I am from
The toxic Hudson River to
The babbling Whang Hollow stream;

I am from
Glamorous Madison Avenue to
Rocky Trail #9;

I am from
Pine Pondís gentle lapping to
The pounding Atlantic surf;

I am from
The tree of Rockefeller,
To snow-covered evergreens;

I am from
Soft feather beds,
To nylon sleeping bags.
