A Short Poem and A Child's Poem 

Robens Napolitan, Short Poem & r & Napolitan, 60, who says she has written poems "all my life," is an avid gardener who lives in a geodesic dome on 10 acres in Sagle, Idaho; she's also a part-time landscape designer, artist (acrylics) and member of a Sandpoint writing group. Of "Truth," she says, "I love when the short ones come. I just get out of the way and let them happen."





Truth





The yellow grosbeak is only a prop & r & the cedar can't do without. & r & I've looked under its wings. & r & There is no air.





Chloe Yates, Child's Poem & r & Chloe Yates was a member of the Moran Prairie Trees Project in Ms. Bowman's class at Jefferson Elementary School. Nine students submitted poems with identical opening lines, and we thought Chloe's was the best of the lot.





What do we plant when we plant a tree? & r & We plant the future for you and me. & r & We plant the leaves to make us air. & r & We plant a tree because we care. & r & We live a life that's long and free, & r & We plant the future when we plant a tree.

    The new one is smart and funny and action-packed, and it’s bigger and better and sleeker. And Downey does it again, this time ramping up Stark’s arrogant wisecracking, telling anyone who’ll listen (mostly women) that, via the creation of his powerful Iron Man suit, he’s brought years of uninterrupted peace to the world.
