KIDS CORNER

Night

The night covers
the world like a blanket.
The silence of the
night is quiet like a baby's breath.
The night is a coating of protection.
The night hovers over me like a watchdog.
The stars at night shine down
at me like a bright light.
The night is full of
interesting wonders.
-- Sara Pacer, Williamsville

Space

Beyond
Terrestrial bodies
Beyond
What is known
Empty
Eternal
Endless
Enormous
Pockmarked with jewels
Trillions in number
Infinity
Does not begin to describe it
Infinity
Is only eight letters long
Space
Is much longer
-- Matthew Vaughn, 12,
Williamsville

They say

They say, "An apple a day keeps the doctor away."
That is what I've been told.
If it is true, what they say,
Then why do I have a cold?

Dogs, cats and one Mr. Hat

Dogs, cats and one Mr. Hat,
And add two scoops of ice cream,
One for the dog,
One for the cat,
But none for Mr. Hat
Rebecca Besch, 8
