Poem Written With Wisconsin Students

With what we know,

We’ve discovered the anatomy of snow,
We’ve gone to the moon,
By explorers whose lives have ended too soon,

But with what we dream,
We’ve seen unseen,
Traveled to the center of the earth,
The womb of humanity’s birth.

With what we know,
We’ve made crops grow,
Traveled around the world,
Ancient mysteries unfurled;

But with what we dream,
We’ve found that things aren’t always what they seem,
We’re free of boundaries,
Allowed to create realities.

    I live several states away from you, and I don't know you personally, but we're both twelve (in fact, our birthdays are fifteen days apart) and we both love writing.

    Before I go any further, I want to apologize in advance if I make any spelling or grammar errors. I'm not very good with grammar and things like that.

    Anyways, the point of me commenting was not neccesaryily about the wonderful poem you posted, but rather about a newspaper article.

    Earlier today, I stumbled across one of your speech vidoes and thought it was just astouding. A few weeks ago, I was accepted as an intern at a small newpaper. My first assignment is to write an article on a famous homeschooler. From what I understand, you're homeschooled.

    I knew the other kids also accepted as interns would choose someone like George Washington, Leonardo Di Vinci, or maybe even Clara Barton. But I thought, "All those are from centuries ago." Nothing is wrong with a long time ago, of course, but I wanted to write about a modern-day homeschooler.

    As I said before, I love writing and dearly hope to get published some day. This newspaper is exciting for me because this will be my first published works. I agree with your views and opinions, and I think you would be a perfect choice for the article.

    So would it be OK if I did the article on you? I understand completely if you don't have time to post a comment to answer. I imagine you must be exceedingly busy.

  2. Ohai Adora,
    a nice poem, I must admit. It's just so... true :)

    Regards from Poland,

  3. Hey Stephanie,

    That would be wonderful if you wanted to write about me! I go to an online school, at home, (so it is technically homeschooling). Thanks for the comment!


  4. You are amazing. I'm enjoying your streams.

  5. Hello Adora!
