So...........

I'm in a dilemma as to what I should do,
Because I do want this to be fun for you,
So I think I might just some of all,
So that there will be something for each vote small.
(that's your poem)

I lifted my eyes towards the sky, so wonderingly and glittering in all of its glory. And then, faintly, a small shadow crossed over the moon. I blinked--was it me, or was that the shadow of a ship? I almost couldn't believe it myself.
     I peered at it some more. There was no mistaking it. It was a Sky Ship. I almost couldn't believe my eyes. My heart pounded wildly as I remembered what the Old Elder had told us children yet the day before--
      "Sky Ships are bad luck, aye, that they are."
      "Why?" I had asked.
      "Why, Arawyn, I thought you yourself would know." The Old Elder had leaned forward, whispering, his breath still stinking of onions and garlic, "Because where there's a Sky Ship, there're Sky Pirates."
        I whipped myself out of my reverie and started running towards Derbyshire. I thought of the peaceful houses lying quietly in the trees, the beautiful cottages arrayed in their splendor of flowers, and the cobbled streets and brick houses. No, I couldn't let it happen...
        I looked up towards the sky. The ship was gone. Was I too late, even now?
        I ran harder.
        Up ahead, I thought I saw some light. Then, I saw with a horrible turning in my stomach, that it wasn't light--it was fire. Flickering flames that engulfed and overtook the beautiful houses of Derbyshire. Dead bodies lay strewn on the cobbles. 
      I froze as I heard the sound of children crying. Why weren't the children dead, too?
      I hid, seeing the Sky Ship floating in the sky, hooked to the top of one of the trees. Ropes were dangling down, and being pulled up on them were the horrible crew of the ship, holding Derbyshire's children.
      And as the ship flew away into the night, I knew that I had to get them back.
(that's your story)

Random fact: there are 1,525,000,000 miles of telephone wire a strung across the U.S.

Book review--Dear America Books
Status: some are interesting, others are boring, others are average; aren't all books? ;)

These books go from the eyes of girls (and sometimes boys, though I think they're in a different series......) that live in America or are involved in America history. Examples: Civil War, Titanic's crossing... the list goes on. Some of them are really interesting. We have lots of these books at our library. Note: ask parents.
(book review people)

In the beginning, God created the heaven and the earth. And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness [was] upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters. And God said, "Let there be light": and there was light.
Genesis 1:1-3

  1. Awesome post! :) I love your story (can't wait to see what happens next!), the picture of the horse is amazing, that Bible verse is like my favorite verse in the whole Bible (actually i'm not really sure...), and I LOVE the Dear America book series! I'm actually reading one right now! It's called "Dreams in the Golden Country." I've read like all of them :)
