A Language Arts assignment
I'm from Snoopy collections
And seven-layer bars;
From tales of Hades and Loki
And the One Ring to rule them all.
I'm from friendships made half-way through the year,
From the velvet blanket of night
And the dance of a pen over paper.
From a year of sandy deserts
And hours lost in different lands;
From Romanticide and Ravenheart
Party Line and Good Eats.
The thrill of red (and the pride that comes with it)
Sons like soaring birds wrapping around,
And picture books read to my sister at night.
I'm from long conversations with friends
And silent moments of solitude.
