Write the Words

2012 National Finalist

Write the Words

Write the words, write the words
Very very invincible words
Dinosaurs going to Mr. Language,
Who are you? I don’t know you.

Three pieces of crunchy walnuts
A retired oak-tree
Poisonous snake, bee-bite
Old leaves on the ground.

Abdul Tawil, age 12
