Right in the Middle of a Raging Storm: An Anthology of Student Poetry
Non-fiction / 54 views
What could you find right in the middle of a raging storm?
A lion escaping from the circus,
a swordfish fleeing from a fisherman,
stinky dinosaurs stomping around,
a haunted house filled with witches, zombies, vampires, and pirates,
cupcakes topped with sprinkles,
an ill-fated game of badminton,
and maybe even that pair of missing glasses.
But beware, because you might step into a video game battle or the Revolutionary War. Watch out for assassin sharks, trees with monster arms, cars colliding with screeches and shrieks, and that hamster as dangerous as a crocodile. And don’t forget to enjoy the colorful unicorns and show respect to the grass!
Created by fifth-grade students, Right in the Middle of a Raging Storm features poetry in a variety of styles, from free verse to diamond poetry, acrostics, and haiku. Proceeds from the sale of this anthology will benefit Lumos, a UK-based nonprofit organization dedicated to placing institutionalized children in families that can provide individualized, loving care.
