Hey guys! I wanted to let you know that this piece is not my work but my little sister's language arts poetry. She gave me permission to share it with you, plus I really wanted to share it with you guys cause I thought it was so good! I will relay any comments you wish to make to her. Thanks!


This poem begins long ago,
A deer there was, in a meadow.
She stood and ate all sorts of leaves,
Only forest in sight, no shells, no seas.

The deer took a breath, and looked all around,
She heard many birds, she knew all the sounds.
The beauty here was like no other.
As she walked over to her mother.

Lavender bushes lived on the ground,
The bees were humming all around.
The deer and her mother took for a run,
As the light on the ground shone from the sun.

(Inspired by the Bible verse Psalm 90:17 "And let the beauty of the LORD our God be upon us.")
