A centaur's day
Erika Salmon, Grade 5, Shiloh Christian School, Tahlequah
Waking up to see the sunshine;
Getting up to make some breakfast.
Going down to bathe in the river;
Briskly going for a morning trot.
Coming back and fishing for catfish -
Cleaning, frying, eating catfish
Planting, watering, growing grapes.
Pawing, sneezing, talking loudly,
Kicking, scoring, playing football.
Picking sticks to use to spar;
Going to the woods to pick some berries
Squishing, squashing, making red wine;
Drinking, eating, laughing happily.
Cleaning up, going to bed,
Having dreams of being a merman.
