A Little Paradise
Phoebe Young, Grade 5, Ravenswood School for Girls

A little paradise,
Where animals roam freely,
A place of contentment that is calmer than the sea.
A safe place for misfits,
A rainforest, a river,
A lavish field of flowers that never wither.
A sweet orchard of fruit,
A leafy valley of green,
A pocket of the world left untouched and unseen.
Secluded and secret,
The water’s comforting tune,
Whispers passionately in the light of the moon.
