Tess is a top ten winner of our spring 2017 national poetry contest for her poem “Mermaid“.

tess poemI am Tess Lielle Cranford. I am 11 years old, a home school student and live in La Quinta, California. I love poetry. It’s a way to speak your feelings without saying a word. I also love painting, sculpting, balloon artistry and my three legged cat, Kitty. I wrote the poem, Mermaid, based on my love of mythical creatures especially mermaids. I wrote it in an un-rhyming sonnet form. I do not like to rhyme but I love to experiment with different forms of poetry. Some of my goals for the future are to continue being a lover of art, writing more poetry and having a farm with lots of animals. “She believed she could, and so she did” unknown
