A Hump of Gold

2010 3rd-4th Grade Poetry Winner

The hump of a camel,
With golden-brown hair,
Bounces slowly up and down
With every step the glorious creature takes,
Like the heads of children jumping on a black and blue trampoline.

His head is raised slightly to the left
As he stops to watch the yellow mound of Jell-O
Set in the East.
Then he blinks,
Those black grapes from Godís garden,
And continues slowly
But steadily
Toward his destination.
