Story Starters, Nov 2018

This new Story Starter comes from my time at the Virginia Children’s Book Festival. Enjoy this poem titled:

A Storm of Emotions By Cheyenne G.

A heart wrapped up

Guarded by chains

Only broken by a man

Whose love was like rain

It could be soft and sweet

Like a mornings mist

Or it was a storm of emotion

Very powerful and intense

But as usual the rain never lasts

So just as the storm the man’s love past

A heart now stands alone

Broken and beaten from what the storm has thrown

Wishing for the man to come take away the pain

Only to realize that there will always be rain

Cheyenne G., Governor’s School of Southside Virginia
