Kindergarten Poet
Maria Blencowe

Michael Adams, a Kindergarten student at Georgia Cyber Academy (GCA), has soared to the top 10 winners in a national poetry contest. His poem, "When I Look Around," stood out among thousands of submissions and was selected as one of the ten best in his grade division.


"When I Look Around" by Michael Adams:


The trees are beautiful

The flowers are bright

When I look around

It is a wonderful sight.


The sun is very bright

It warms the ones who are cold.

I look around the earth

And love the colors that are bold.


In recognition of his achievement, Michael received a $25 prize and a copy of the poetry anthology, "A Celebration of Poets," which features his winning poem.

Congratulations, Michael.  Keep soaring!
