Featured Student Writer: Lasarina Hope Webster

on April 24, 2014


Top Ten Winner Lasarina Webster was an 8-year-old in second grade at Kathleen H Ryerson Elementary School when she wrote her poem, “Color Mirage.”  This poem was selected as one of the ten best submitted for her age division in our Summer 2013 national poetry contest.  Lasarina is the oldest of four kids, and everyone in her family has red hair.

“My inspiration for the poem was ‘the way colors can describe feelings.’ To be completely honest, I came up with the idea that morning when my three-year-old brother was watching a show called Timmy’s Time and I caught a glimpse of it. That episode was about a mirage and I decided that I would write a poem about a mirage of colors and feelings…a ‘Color Mirage.'”

Lasarina would love to be a professional writer when she grows up.
