The Sea*

August 27, 2017


2017 Merit Award
By Maddie Patterson, 3rd grade

The sea is like a platter of opalescent
blue shine jewels. It is the biggest treasure.
The blood of the world.

. . . . . .
Maddie Patterson was just finishing third grade when she wrote this poem. This is her very first published poem. She likes to watch her favorite movie, Labyrinth, and draw things from her imagination. She likes to read graphic novels and chapter books.

“I wrote ‘The Sea’ while I was on the bus ride home from school. I saw Lake Whatcom and imagined it as a sea. I wanted to write a poem that described what it looked like.”
