[at-l] Ok, ok, my poems...



Since so many of you have posted your poems and narratives and such to this
list, I thought it wouldn't kill me to add a couple of my own.  The following
are the poems that I'm going to be sending to Harvard.  I had my interview
with the Harvard rep two Saturdays ago, and he suggested I send some of my
poems in...these are the ones my English teacher thought I should send...I'm
not sure if I agree yet...

A fire inside you
branding "Yes I can"
on your nervous jelly interior.
Bunny hopping an 8 inch log.
Listening to, feeling a
screaming downhill.
Learning to fly:
Spreading your wings,
Trusting your skills.
Summitting a 5.12b climb.
Becoming a leader.
YOUR LIFE:
Spend it or save it.
--------
Gently falling rain
As storm clouds begin weeping
Shedding their burdens
--------
Keepers of twilight
Stars, Moon, and planets dancing
Midnight ritual
---------
Torrential waters
Quickly sweeping life downstream
With unbiased brooms
---------
"The Mountain of God"
The mountain was a giant.
Tall, like a redwood;
Old as time;
Wiser than Solomon.
He towered over the land,
watching the people.
He was more majestic than a thousand kings,
Thick violet mist for his crown.
He saved the people, commanded them.
And they praised him.
