Quiet Poem
By Nick Treinen
Genre: Poetry Level: Elementary 4-6
Year: 2002 Category: Margaret Mielke Memorial Poetry Award

A silent leopard stalks
the wary gazelle

The butterfly dances
through the forest
making no noise at all

Schools of minnows, their
tiny noses muffled
by the water

And quieter than all
the rest, time flows
through the air, unnoticed
and unheard
 
About the Author: Nick Treinen attends Government Hill Elementary School in Anchorage, AK.
