Writing Contest Winners

In our April issue, we asked kids to use their senses of sight, smell, hearing, taste and touch to write a sensory poem about spring. We selected two winners, who’ll each receive a $25 gift certificate to Crow Bookshop in Burlington. You’ll find their writing below.

Lindley Pickard, 10, Shelburne

Spring is a season that surprises all. One year it’s a warm spring, the other is cold. Spring brings warmth and beautiful sights, flowers and colorful lights. I hear the birds coming back North. I hear the cool wind as it gives my spine a chill. I can see the grass on the tall hill as the snow melts away. The best part about spring is that it always reminds you of peace and love.


Emilia Poczobut, 7, Barre

I see the sky is blue
and the ponds are too.
I feel the pool is cool.
I hear bees waking up in trees.
I feel showers for the flowers.
The grass is green, better put on sunscreen.
The cherry blossom smells awesome.
You don’t need a coat when you’re on a boat.
I taste sugar on snow, it is time to go.
