Sanctuary

Sanctuary
Jimmy Contompasis

My neighbor’s basketball court
Is my sanctuary

People of the world
All have personal sanctuaries
Some do not know it
But everyone has a place of peace

I find mine playing basketball
On my neighbor’s court
I let out my emotions
And just play

The thump of the ball
The murmur of the trash talk
The ching of the chain net
Bring me peace Read more »

I Feel as Free as a Bird When I go to Sleep
By Alaynna Northrop

Magical stars dancing across your dreams.
as you close your eyes
you will see the skaters dancing in your dreams.
When the wind blows
you will feel as free as a butterfly
flipping through the fields.
I watch them flip, fly and flow through the air,
flowing dreams across my mind.

"The Skater's Waltz"

"The Skater's Waltz"
By Hannah Domas
Rochester High School, Grade 9

"Sweet dreams Mom," I say.
"Sweet dreams," she answers back.
I lay in my bed,
with the covers tucked around me tight.
Slowly, I look around my room.
At the ceiling,
with the small chip in it,
right above my bed.
At the old white desk in the corner.
Then I look out the window.
The dark, cloudy night sky Read more »

Weightless

Weightless
By Ellie Blake
Charlotte Central School, Grade 5

You are weightless
gliding along
glasslike
delicacy.

Your body has
drifted to an
abandoned path,
just your soul
is left.

The world around you
is wearing a coat,
a white blanket,
that seems to be
worth gold.

A feeling is thrust
upon you.
Thousands of
pounds of joy.
Bells sing,
harmonies melt. Read more »

I Skate

I Skate
By Kate Danyow
6th Grade
Charlotte Central School
VT Symphony Project

I am skating
Flowing, floating, gliding,
Soaring
Snowflakes falling
Jumping, landing
I swirl
Silver blades
Making sharp turns
Swish
Bits of ice flying up
Dreaming
Blankets of snow
Cold wind
Against my face
Faster
Slower
Never stopping
Snowing harder
Flakes in my hair
On my face Read more »

Dancing With the Stars

Dancing With the Stars
By Chennah Sharpe
Grade: 7
School: Charlotte Central School

Swans glide on the cold lake,
On an sunny blue day
Glittering with new snow,
Their wings white as snow,
Their beaks black as a fall night,
Their feathers fluffed up and ready,
To twirl, to jump, to skate,
They jump on a cloud passing by,
They dance on their toes,
Then they do three triple lutz, Read more »

Kingdom of Her Skates

Kingdom of her Skates
By Lynnie Woodruff
Grade 7, Charlotte Central School
Special Project: Symphony

Through the snow
The shovel cuts
And the lamp
In the middle
On the old upside-down
Crate
The lantern
Flickers

The shovel slices through
The cold air
Then tromps
A pair of worn
Winter boots
After the boots
A pair of
Skates
Blades cutting into
The ice.

Ice Dream

ICE DREAM
By Kestrel Grevatt
6th Grade, Charlotte Central School
Vermont Symphony Project

Skating fast,
Up,
Then down,
Revolving,
Spiraling,
On the spot.
My dream goes
On,
And on,
And on.

Skating in circles,
Stopping,
Starting,
Whirling,
Twirling,
On ice.
My dream goes
On,
And on,
And on.

Gathering speed,
Slowing,
Leaping,
Turning,
Jumping
Grazing the ice. Read more »

Among Stars

Among Stars

By Cally Braun
6th Grade
Charlotte Central School
Vermont Symphony Project

My skates
Glide over
The ice
Weaving patterns
Twirl, twist, turn,

I am lifted into
The air
My feet
Still dancing
Dashing through
The swirling clouds
Blades flashing silver
I catch a glimpse
Of white wings
Flying majestically
Through the night
Twirl, twist, turn

Melodies ride Read more »
