Rainforest
By Eli S.
 
The rainforest is a wide, mysterious place full of life
It tastes like brisk, cold wind soaring through my hair
It sounds like an animal kingdom singing their many songs
It smells like the day after a thunderstorm
It looks like a mammoth stretch of land teeming with wildlife
It makes me feel covered and protected
 
Eli read his poem to our community at last week's Red, White, Blue & Green Assembly. Congratulations, Eli!
