Ellena Gibbs - National Poetry Winner

Did you know that Ellena Gibbs—the daughter of Nick Gibbs and Bethany Barrone Gibbs—won a national poetry contest!? This is her prize-winning poem, The Wind:

The Wind

I drive currents through the soft, green grass

To steer your wandering feet

I wave the tall and sturdy trees

To say "Hi!" when we meet

To you I softly whisper tales

My most beloved stories

Tales of joy and sorrow

And of cowardice and glory

I watch you as you live your life

And guide you as you do

But you neglect to notice me

Although I care for you

Out of all my many hopes

I wish one most sincerely

The hope that you remove your blindfold

And finally see me clearly
