A Sample poem

Peace is Still
Still flat water on a lake;
A mighty eagle on its perch;
Rain falling for any sake;
Bowed heads in a silent church.
Peace is still,
But not man’s will.
Men get lost,
Especially in the dark.
Everything as cold as frost,
The world is filled with savage sharks.
Peace is silent;
Man is violent…
Kendall McClellan, 12th Grade (first place)
