Christina Lau, Grade 10
I dreamt I could write a thousand words,
with a rhyming scheme of AB, AB.
Perhaps, with a meter for extra flair.
But I cannot swear to rhyme more than two,
for my vocabulary is not that good.
For I am a humble man.
O, how I do wish I could write like Shakespeare
or perhaps like Dante Alighieri.
For then I could articulate myself in much
finer ways than: I. Love. You.
