POEM WINNER IN BYRDSTOWN WOMEN’S CLUB COUNTY CONTEST: I wish I was a daffodil/standing straight and strong and still/While the wind blows “round” the hill/I said, “I’m glad I’m a daffodil.”/Though spring may come and spring may go/ I’ll keep my everlasting glow/Winter will come and bring the snow/Spring again, and then I’ll grow/Though daffodils may stir in the wind/I’ll make an everlasting blend/But when it comes my time to go/Don’t cry, I’ll be back I know. ELIZABETH REAGAN (Grade 5)
