    • 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.
