This week’s featured poet is Corrine Dragon! Corrine is 19 years old and a ConVal alumni. An interesting fact about Corrine is that not only is she an amazing writer, but she’s also a talented musician! She was in Band at ConVal for all four years and was a part of the Percussion, Clarinet, Saxophone, Flute, Trombone, and French Horn sections!
Today’s poem by Corrine is titled “Definition of Happiness”.
Definition of Happiness By Corrine Dragon Moonbeams branded our skin with light as we tiptoed beneath the stars I was afraid to wake the sun Unwanted eyes burning holes into something so delicate But you wanted her to wake You wanted to show her all the brilliant things that happened while she was away To share what made you happy You dragged me through the tall grass Shouting beautiful nonsense to the audience above us And as I watched you parade around I found myself smiling Smiling because you lived so freely Smiling because you didn't care who knew our secret You wanted the world to know you were happy And I found myself wanting that too
Please come back everyday this week to hear more poems from Corrine! And come back next week to meet another talented Avenue A Writer!
