Stories, Poems, and Art by Kids
Something so strong,
Not the sharpest knife could spear,
Not the heaviest club could knock out,
Not the strongest python could strangle,
But with one word I...
Your mother is calling you.
It is time to go to bed.
The night is calling out its cry of dark.
“Come, come,” she calls to you.
Again you do not answer.
A candle in the darkness

Wandering through miles of clear December air.

While serving the steaming hot side dish.
Instead of hearing the soft music
Lost by Liberty
Freedom to Fly
The Boy Fictionalist
The Search for Literature
My Deepest Desires
The Pet War
We Will Not Be Silent
