      • Than a Clap of Thunder
      • Louder than a clap of thunder, louder than an eagle screams, louder than a dragon blunders, or a dozen football teams, louder than a four alarmer, or a rushing waterfall, louder than a knight in armor jumping from a ten-foot wall. Louder than an earthquake rumbles, louder than a tidal wave, louder than an ogre grumbles
      • as he stumbles through his cave, louder than stampeding cattle, louder than a cannon roars, louder than a giant's rattle, that's how loud my father SNORES!
    • Poet $300
      • My Shadow
      • I have a little shadow that goes in and out with me,
      • And what can be the use of him is more than I can see.
      • He is very, very like me from the heels up to the head;
      • And I see him jump before me, when I jump into my bed.
      • The funniest thing about him is the way he likes to grow--
      • Not at all like proper children, which is always very slow;
      • For he sometimes shoots up taller like an india-rubber ball,
      • And he sometimes goes so little that there's none of him at all.
      • He hasn't got a notion of how children ought to play,
      • And can only make a fool of me in every sort of way.
      • He stays so close behind me, he's a coward you can see;
      • I'd think shame to stick to nursie as that shadow sticks to me!
      • One morning, very early, before the sun was up,
      • I rose and found the shining dew on every buttercup;
      • But my lazy little shadow, like an arrant sleepy-head,
      • Had stayed at home behind me and was fast asleep in bed.
    • Poet $400
      • The Road Not Taken   
      • TWO roads diverged in a yellow wood,
      • And sorry I could not travel both
      • And be one traveler, long I stood
      • And looked down one as far as I could
      • To where it bent in the undergrowth;         
      • Then took the other, as just as fair,
      • And having perhaps the better claim,
      • Because it was grassy and wanted wear;
      • Though as for that the passing there
      • Had worn them really about the same,         
      • And both that morning equally lay
      • In leaves no step had trodden black.
      • Oh, I kept the first for another day!
      • Yet knowing how way leads on to way,
      • I doubted if I should ever come back.         
      • I shall be telling this with a sigh
      • Somewhere ages and ages hence:
      • Two roads diverged in a wood, and I—
      • I took the one less traveled by,
      • And that has made all the difference.          
    • Poet $500
      • Words Like Freedom
      • There words like Freedom
      • Sweet and wonderful to say.
      • On my heartstrings freedom sings
      • All day everyday.
      • There are words like Liberty
      • That almost make me cry.
      • If you had known what I know
      • You would know why.
