Place Poems   
Place poems work to describe the essence of a place by picking one small view within it.

  “Mt. Ocean”
        by Matthew C., age 10

A Dark Alley in New York  

bolts rocks
garbage cans drug deals
bums murderers
screws bullet shells
rusty cars fights
dirt darkness
nails broken bottles
ants rabid dogs
garbage and—Boom—
hippies it's daytime
          — Adam Arthure, 5th

Deserted Farm
A deserted farm is a lonely place.
It gives you a deep cold thought.
As the wind blows through the tall weeds
the trees bend and crackle
and the windmill squeaks
while the door wildly claps against the barn.
          — Fred Beanblossom, 9th
