Poetry box by the Turner family.
by Lucy Turner
Brown mist around the mountain,
Beneath a treasure blue,
Jewels sparkling like diamonds,
Silver eyelash blading through.
A girl that grows her heart out BIG,
Watering her future from the seeds sprouting from her head,
Picked children from her garden and did what mama said,
Planting learning in the minds of children and the faces she had read.
Shows she’s a wonderful teacher from the seed up to the stem.
Poem by Lucy Turner who wrote the poem to honor Ms. Tracy O’Lari, a teacher that has had a great influence upon her. Lucy is ten years old, a triplet with her sister Ella and her brother Aidan. All three are in the fifth grade at Mystic Middle School.
Along with parents, Kevin and Pam Turner, the whole family took part in constructing the poetry box. Lucy’s vision for the box was a rustic birdhouse in the wild; covered in moss, surrounded by butterflies.
