Born into this world
Frida Rosner, who is in fifth grade at Marlboro
Elementary School, says she was
inspired to write this poem by a painting she made of a girl and a feather. "I
erased the girl's face too many times and she ended up all wrinkly," Frida
says. "It gave me the idea that her face could relate to the feather."
Born into this world,
everyone has a pure, white feather
resting upon their heart,
a golden sun above them
and an eagle spirit hovering nearby.
But there's always a black puddle of worry
lying at their feet.
Somehow the darkness lures all.
Keep your feathers clean
Keep the sun shining above you.
Save your guardian eagle.
Then you will learn to turn your back
on that puddle of worry.
