My granddaughter, Daisy Wilson, age 9, wrote this as an assignment for her class at St John's Elementary School. She wrote this without any assistance, except for the inspiration from the poem by Robert Frost, "The Road Not Taken."

The Hope of Holes by Daisy Wilson age 9 (granddaughter of KL)

Three holes
Some good
One evil

Though I was headed for a good path
I tripped on a rock of lies
And fell somewhere
I didn't want to go

I fell into evil

In the hole, I was cold and scared
Without any hope

Quietly looking

Something didn't feel right

I struggled to get out to the point I couldn't

Beautiful! Amazing kid writing with the sense of a grownup, but asking the questions that a child asks, which are the important ones ... amazing

"I tripped on a rock of lies"-- that is my favorite part. This is a wonderful poem and you are wise beyond your years.

I love reading children's poems. They are unbridled by preconceptions and delightfully fresh. Well done Dsisy aged 9, I'm sure Robert Frost is smiling, somewhere.

Daisy, you better join Poetbay, you are worthy!

From the mouth of babes... brava!

This is honest poetry, and wonderful—a "warm grass of passion" is a dream one would wish to come true.

Bookmarked for its reminder of what a poem can be.
