"The whole theory of modern education is radically unsound." Lady Bracknell, The Importance of Being Earnest, Oscar Wilde


You’ll find me where the sidewalk ends,
With paper and pen and a million
Million thoughts in my head.
You’ll find me writing in a journal
That is dog-eared and torn,
As the peppermint wind cools my head.
I watch as the moon-bird flies in the sky,
And I wish I could fly too.
I’ll be sitting in the soft white grass,
Waiting as though for a sign,
A sign to begin, to end.
You’ll find me where the sidewalk ends.


The author's comments:
I wrote this about what brings me inspiration as a writer. "Where the Sidewalk Ends" by Shel Silverstein is my all-time favorite poem, and I used phrases from that- "where the sidewalk ends," the peppermint wind," "soft white grass."

Thanks so much for all your comments. I've check out your pieces too, and I think you're an awesome writer as well.

Wow. This is amazing. I love it. I do believe that you should submit this also to your school's literary magazine. Definitely. You are a potent writer.
