Elementary student wins library’s poetry contest



ShES Hunter Fultz Poetry Contest 2

Hunter Fultz, fifth grader at Shrewsbury Elementary School, shown with her teacher Natalie Robar, won first place for her poem, Owls, in Martin Library’s annual Poetry Contest.


Hiding the night completely unseen,

To do that, you must be very keen,

You watch and stare with your big eyes,

Twitching and flinching at every small sound,

You glide so low without touching the ground,

How do you get your wings so strong?

Not to mention, they’re very long!

Your color is so amazing,

And your eyes are always gazing,

Even with a temper so foul,

I still wish I could be an owl!
