Abigail's Poetry

Abigail woke up this morning with an urgent need to write down poetry. We were surprised and delighted at this new artistic inclination. She has been really enjoying Shel Silverstein's poems and we think that those have inspired her. Here are her first two compositions:
Abigail's Poem
Listen When the Wind Blows
By Abigail A. Ward

Listen when the wind blows
The kite blows
The trees blow
Listen when the wind blows
Then that's all that it should be.

Listen when the wind blows
The clouds blow
The bushes blow
Then that's all that it should be.

(I should note that it is windy this morning here in Minnesota)

Abigail's Poem
The Racoon Races
By Abbey A. Ward

The racoon races
The deer chases
The birds chatter
The greens whatter
The trees whisper
A baby whimpers.


  1. Abbey! I loved your poetry!!! I can't wait to read more! I remember when I was 9 years old I woke up in the middle of the night and just had to write a poem to God that was in my head from a dream. I don't remember now what I wrote but I remember that I just had to pen it down quickly!

    I love you!

  2. Abbey, your poetry is beautiful. I especially like the one with the wind and the sound it makes. I didn't start writing poetry until I was twelve, but I also liked describing nature and wind. Please write more! You have a real talent for writing! (It runs in the family:))

I love to hear from you!
