I'M PLEASED TO POST THIS LOVELY POEM BY TEEN AUTHOR NADIA L. ON TEEN AND TWEEN TUESDAY. THANK YOU FOR SHARING YOUR WORK, NADIA!

 

Joy

We sing, the bells ring, a cacophony of sounds—

Harmonic, euphonic, the rhythmic beat pounds.

Hailing loud, shouting proud, no greater joy is found,

We’ll be children again; we’ll astonish and astound

The world! Dreams like pearls, precious gold, tales untold.

We will sing, we will weep, and through time we’ll grow old.

Though we die, though we cry, though we lie in the cold

Still find life, still find joy, still find hope to tight hold.

Elation, exhilaration, the thrill of the ride,

Waves break, the earth shakes, and we travel the tide.

Expeditions, tradition, discovery, effort, pride

Aspiration, dedication, and dreams undenied.

Oh! We sing, the bells ring, our delight amplifies

Euphoric, ecstatic, a rhythm we loud cry

Shout, how we shout, and grief we defy

From the ground to the sky, we lift our voice high!

 

Nadia is a 13-year-old homeschooled Christian who wants to praise the Lord with her whole life. Creating is her most favorite thing to do—creating pictures, creating stories, creating scarves and mittens, creating cookies, and best of all—creating smiles. Besides creating, her other favorite things are bright colors and weird words. In fact, she hopes you will comment with one (or two [or three]) of your favorite words! Her current favorite is "erinaceous", which means "of pertaining to, or resembling a hedgehog."

Mz. Sally, thank you so much! I will definitely check out your books. Odious is such a funny word. When I first read it, I thought it had something to do with a bad smell (not just a smell; a BAD smell, because in the context it was clear it had a negative connotation)!

Thank you so much for visiting Teens of Today and Tomorrow, Sally. I will be sure to tell Nadia you left her a comment. Hope you come back soon!

I found your poem today, Nadia and enjoyed it very much. When I was your age, I read the word, odious, in the midst of a novel and it sent me flying to the dictionary to find out what it meant. I love words and write for Christian YA. I've just added a poetry page to my blog. http://bit.ly/Uq67Pp
