Poem: "Untitled"

Untitled

The elephants,
The candles,
The DRUMS BONG BONG!
Listen to the beat of the drums in your mind, bong bong.
It makes you think of the elephants stomping,
Pounding against the ground: thum THUP! Thum
Mix the sound of the drums
And the elephants feet pounding
Bong Bong
Thum Thump
Bong Bong Thump
And think of the sound of the candle's wick
Krickle Krack Krack
Mix the energy of these sounds
And listen closely
You'll hear Thabonkrick!

—Samson Velazquez (9 years)
