Winning Poem:

The Feather by Lynn Long


Once upon a cool spring breeze

A feather flew with grace and ease

Gliding along without care

The feather sailed into warm summer air

Over oceans and mountaintops

The feather drifted without stop

Autumn brought a gentle rain

Amid melancholy winds of change

With wistful hope of being found

The lonely feather fell to the ground

Alas, landing where the heart does lie

Gently admired- let free to fly

The feather learned a simple truth

One he lost somewhere in youth

For life's journey follows

the path within

Ever-changing to begin again...

 

Once upon a cold winter breeze - A feather flew with grace and ease
