for Keeper of the Stars I always wonder who keeps the Stars but now J know that the Stars are not owned by anybody I know now that the Stars are owned by your eyes and the space that no one can own Now I know that what I wonder is just a dream of my LIFE Simons West Texas Creatures I have entered into a strange strange land Theres nothing around me but dust and sand The wind blows and the trees bend As though they were reaching for a long lost friend I looked in the distance for some sign of life Then feeling the danger I felt for my knife From out on the plain they came a charging With every tumble they seemed to be enlarging Their movement was rapid rolling and fast Their appearance was skratchy prickly and vast My mind started working how to defeat an ugly round creature I was destined to meet Boldly it rolled onto my path Then did I attack with vengeance and wrath No tail to cut off no eyes to gouge out But that 1 would defeat it I load no doubt But my friend beside me at first seemed then doubled over in laugliter I thought she was Finally she straightened and called me a dweeb But to do such a thing to a poor TUMBLIWEED Miranda Stewart Middle School winners Rachelle

get there by today And when Im finally there Ill be a merchants son Ill sail across the seven seas Oh Boy Fun I might as well unpack Because this trip is beat Id have to take my Mom along Cause I cant cross the street Martin Secrets I have a little secret please come closer Gabrielle and if I share it with you will you promise not to tell Gabby answered I agree Ill never make a peep Now tell me quick whats the news from others we must keep Georgia whispered in her ear Gabriclles eyes grew wider and she began to wonder if this secret could stay inside her Gabby thought Ill just tell possibly Sarah and But when I tell them I will make them promise not to tell Langdon Song for a Surf Rider I ride the horse that is the sea his mane flows wild and free his eyes flash with an emerald fire his mighty heart will never tire Mis hoofbeats echo in the sand he quivers as I raise my hand We race together the sea and I under the watching summer sky Co where the magic islands lie Jennifer I leinemeicr Imagination What arc you afraid of When youre walking in your mind Are you afraid of monsters Or other things youll find Maybe youll find the past Hiding behind a wall Maybe youll just find nothing Not a thing at ail Maybe youll find the day Waiting just past your nose Maybe youll find the night When your eyes are finally closed Whatever it is youre looking for or whatever youre trying to fine Just close your eyes and sing a song And open up your mind Rachelle Temoney Im Going to Run Away Im going to run away Im never coming back I think Ill ride to Ancient Greece Adult division winners Allene Blaker second Ed Morris first and John Rightmire third Path to Nowhere When Will I Im living living Just being being What am I doing Empty path to nowhere leading Ever begging ever pleading For some loner just like me Waiting for discovery Sitting Alone Sitting alone in a chair by the wall Staring at the wall plain white See a crack Follow it up with my eyes Up Up higher higher It splits in two directions Then down down A shining droplet I sec myself Sitting alone in a chair by a wall Plain white Watching my eyes watching the wall Then I sec the crack and remember the droplet glistening in the unseen sun What is it What does it mean I see the droplet again A shining droplet Falling down down down Into a shallow pool of crystal clear Memories Memories I dont remember Memories I cant forget Jamie Pantermuehl Just living living Songs bombs apathy and love sensory excitement delightments euphoria and greed seeds of mirth the funeral dirth Im floating floating Just swimming swimming What am I doing just floating floating When will I stop floating floating and start soaring diving to the depths heights To find Cold heat and burning ice Gigantic lice parasites Unending boundaries and enclosed eternity Insanity Totality life Garza 111 Tall grass standing side you waves Crackles as the field I brave Still the lonesome trail pleads on Noon to night til crack of dawn By some instinct inside propelled All my fears are now dispelled To walk the pathway now Im free To walk into eternity Askey Beautiful Future If the coming years should bring Less of song and more of pain Less of laughter more of grief Let me Beauty yet remain Faithful firm in my belief That beauty in and out of season Can redeem the buffeting That men suffer under reason Let me still if shadows come And calculations reason near Turn with my remaining breath Without a shadow thought of fear To beauty then if there is death It will be a death that rises Singing upward not the numb And cold conclusion matter prizes Let my ashes as they fall Kiss the singing earth and blend With the vernal song of spring Beautys portion shall not end Somewhere somewhere we shall wing I and Beauty she and I Quite beyond the dark recall Of little moments that would die Ed Morris Uncommitted I work at the newspaper typing the news f And columns releases and editors views The Art of the and All Around The style of the bodice of each wed ding gown I know every club every lodge every troop 1 type about every community group And what have I learned of the folks in this city Everyone EVERYONES on a committee Why is it that whenever folks get v together They cant stick to subjects like tax es and weather And things we cant change without starting to doubt it And forming a group to do some thing about it Vf They set up a chair and a cochair or two And gather some facts or at least say they Onethird are in favor of all thats L proposed Onethird undecided and onethird opposed i Minutes are taken and hours are lost Theyll reach a decision whatever the And when its all over they did what they could And some say At least the refresh ments were good But nothing is changed and it seems such a pity For didnt they have an committee If I had MY way and if it were per mitted Id have everyone on committeesc COMMITTED So they could weave baskets of new schemes And chase after butterflies not futile dreams I cant help but think THEYD be happier too J And Id have a whole lot less to do Blaker Tears Tears are salty liquid Flowing from our eyes They fall to earth evaporate And become our cloudy skies Singers cry a Men can hold them back Yeah Ive heard that one before Men cry and thats a fact Youll find them round a deathbed And Olympic podium Many spots are dotteld With this liquid sodium Five billion people walk this Earth Think of all those tears Then add the fact weve been around For several million years Too much grief on planet Earth Will it ever halt Is it any wonder That our oceans taste like salt Rightmire 10th Annual Folkfest 95 at Conservation Plaza The Museum of Texas Handmade Furniture GROUNDS OPEN Saturday May 6 Sunday May 5 Adult Donation Children
