I wrote quite a bit of poetry as a child. Most of it has been lost to time. Not all of it though. Some pieces were lurking on an old hard drive, waiting to pounce.
I don’t recall my exact age when I wrote this. I think I was about twelve. I won’t be winning any literary prizes, but I still like the shapeness of it.

That’s beautiful. I love “shape” poems… there’s probably another, more elegant name for them, but that’s mine. Well done. 🙂
Thanks! I also call them shape or shaped poems. If there’s some other technical literary term for it, I don’t know what it is.
Great poem. I hope you don't mind I share this with my class next week. They will be writing some concrete poems. This is a great example.
I also want to share this picture. It fits your poem perfectly.
Chad, I don't mind at all, and that photo is very apt.
