Editors note: The Citizen Telegram is teaming with Highland Elementary School to publish and recognize a selected writing sample from one student each month of the 2015-16 school year. This month features a poem penned by a fourth-grade student.


A simple wish

A hopeful whipser

A peaceful thought.

A little voice

A meaningful scene

Words you cannot describe.

Your heart is speaking

Telling you stories

That last forever.


A cheerful smile

A thankful heart

A bright excitement.

A hopeful voice


Expressing joy and happiness.

It melts away cold and bitterness

Replacing it with warmth

And moves on.
