Writing Contest Winners
In our April issue, we asked kids to use their senses of sight, smell, hearing, taste and touch to write a sensory poem about spring. We selected two winners, who’ll each receive a $25 gift certificate to Crow Bookshop
in Burlington. You’ll find their writing below.
Lindley Pickard, 10, Shelburne
Spring is a season that surprises all. One year it’s a warm spring, the other is cold. Spring brings warmth and beautiful sights, flowers and colorful lights. I hear the birds coming back North. I hear the cool wind as it gives my spine a chill. I can see the grass on the tall hill as the snow melts away. The best part about spring is that it always reminds you of peace and love.

I see the sky is blue
and the ponds are too.
I feel the pool is cool.
I hear bees waking up in trees.
I feel showers for the flowers.
The grass is green, better put on sunscreen.
The cherry blossom smells awesome.
You don’t need a coat when you’re on a boat.
I taste sugar on snow, it is time to go.
