Garden Ghosts

Abhi Dodgson, a
fourth-grader from South Hero who is home schooled, says that his family has a
tradition in which he gives his parents gifts of poetry. "Garden Ghosts was a
poem I wrote for my mom," he says. "My mother loves spending time in the
garden and I had just finished studying weather, and that is what inspired me."


The wind chimes
are chiming
the lake is shining and the
sun is peeking through a cloud
the ghosts that dance in the
garden rise up and
become the clouds
that sit atop the sky
and when it’s time for the ghosts to
come down they gracefully
fly back to their little
home in the flowers and
then it happens
all over
