The first day of National Poetry Month.

I've decided to post a poem a day, for National Poetry Month. Cassie Marshall is among my list of favorite teenagers. She's a really neat kid, and the daughter of Alison, of RDH Mom, fame. I asked her permission to save a publish her poems for this month's poem-fest. These were previously published by Alison. Thank you, Cassie.

The Wind, by Cassie Marshall

The wind blows through as a sign of life.
The wind blows through my hair.
The wind blows through the field as it makes flowers sway from side to side.
I smile when the wind blows because I know
That when the wind is blowing
It is blowing through my soul.
And when it is in my soul,
I know that is where my soul will be
When I expire.

I Love To Sing, by Cassie Marshall

I love to sing,
It makes my heart ring.
Like the bells in a church,
Like a bird on a perch.
Any type of song,
I can sing all day long.I love to sing,
It makes my heart ring.

Me, by Cassie Marshall

Wishes to swim with dolphins,
Dreams of becoming a marine mammal biologist,
Wants to make a difference in the world.
Who wonders what it is like in space.
Who fears death.
Who is afraid of war.
Who likes to have a great time.
Who believes in heaven and hell.
Who loves pizza and ice cream.
Who loves karate.
Who loves her family.
Who loves to help people in need.

Do you have a poem you love, and want to share?

Inaugurated by the Academy in April 1996, National Poetry Month (NPM) brings together publishers, booksellers, literary organizations, libraries, schools, and poets around the country to celebrate poetry and its vital place in American culture. Thousands of businesses and non-profit organizations participate through readings, festivals, book displays, workshops, and other events.
