POETRY HEALS THE HEART AND SOUL - January 1, 2008

WALKING BY
By Jocelyn Galindo
(Third Grade)
Contest Winner
Sometimes I walk by the empty street.
I feel the beat inside of me.
I take another step.
Wondering what would be of me someday.
I walk by Avenue Street.
Thinking, what a lovely day today.
I feel the burn. Deep inside my lonely soul.
I nearly cross the street by my house.
I wonder why I sincerely feel
so much sorrow for myself.

“The chant/song/poem is what heals the heart and soul”…..Perie J. Longo, PhD. RPT NAPT 1997

A TEAR FALL
By Stephanie Salas
(Fifth Grade) Runner-up
I shed a tear
today, silently.
I felt it fall, you
caught it, shared
it, held it, felt it, then
suddenly it wasn’t so big after all.
