DMC: "Children's Writer" by Robyn Campbell
My mind paints pictures in words.
Scattered images soaring,
traveling through my backdrop.
I sketch syllables and verbs,
rhyme schemes, rhythm and meter.
They twirl and bop, cavorting.
Winking at me with spirit,
they scintillate with ditty,
title me writer, poet.
The words give children a voice,
speaking a kids melody—
music, euphony, friendship.
