Earth’s Beginning

By Penelope Sheer, 9, USA


An ageless, curious, old widow
With long, sharp fingertips goes into a deep sleep.
She sees a star in her dream
And makes a wish upon it.
She tells the star that there is a place
Where living creatures will make a home.
The trees will sway back and forth;
The birds will chirp their song,
And we can sing along
To this wonderful place
Where each soul belongs.
