"BREAD CAN BE BLOWN AWAY......" Hannah D'Alessandro

"Bread," took first prize two weeks ago at the Hungry Ghost Annual Poetry Contest in Northampton, MA. When asked where she gets her inspiration for her poem, six-year-old Hanna said "It's just something I am working on at school..."  

Bread is like a flying saucer
When you cut it
And it falls to the ground.
Bread is adored by all creatures
Squirrels, moose, deer,
Crabs, mermaids, oysters,
Starfish, chipmunks.
But sometimes when your window is opened
And the wind is blowing
Bread can be blown away.
So tomorrow morning,
When you get breakfast,
Make sure your window is not
