Emily McGovern's Poetry Flyer

Spring Is Here

Sunshine illuminating the green grass

People with smiles across their faces

Robins conversing among the blooming trees

Invigorating children laughing in the streets

Not a single cloud in the blue sky

Gardens flooded with radiant flowers

Friends and Family


Affection, Trust

Loving, Caring, Understanding

Always there at your lowest and highest times

Encouraging, Welcoming, Comforting

Loyal, Reliable


Voice Lost

Among us people

We watch struggle before out eyes

Inside our voices fight to show compassion

Yet our mouths stay closed in silence


Hold fast to dreams

For if dreams die

Life is a broken winged bird

That cannot fly

Hold fast to dreams

For when dreams go

Life is a barren field

Frozen with snow

-Langston Hughes
