Maddie's Poem

Maddie wrote a poem at school last week.

Graspping On

Playing the guitar
is as soothing
as the sound of rain
Feeling it in your hands
is like feeling a smooth rock,
dotted with gold.
Grasping onto the sound,
pulling it in,
is like finding a needle
in a haystack.
Being able to play it
is a gift worthy to anybody
willing to practice
Do not push the sound away,
for it will feel
like a special pet,
dead or dying.
If feeling sad,
pick up the guitar
and play away your feelings,
If you find that
one day you cannot
grasp the feeling of playing,
then it is your own fault

I thought it was pretty cool!
