Dreams of Vermont

Hi Students,

I have written a second draft. What do you think?

There are so many dreams I have

A home in Vermont

A stream dancing down the mountains

Green hills covered in trees

And the scent of evergreen

There are so many dreams I have

A garden

A horse in the backyard

A bike on my front porch

The scent of an apple pie baking

The low hum of women’s voices set to the rhythmic tick of Knitting needles

Those dreams take me far away from the world’s news

Newtown, Hadiya, a Colorado theater, a Chicago playground

Lost lives, lost dreams

Blood shed

Those dreams follow me

Soothe me when I fall into the darkness of my own depression

Take over my imagination just after the 10:00 news

Sheltering me from time to time

Reminding me of a better place
