Poetry Corner: “The Beautiful Flowers”


The beautiful buds of the gazing fields 

With smells of lavender in the spring air 

They go to dance in the breeze to conceal

The vile monstrosities that need repair 


I can envision them both far and near

From the big mountains to vast autumn plains 

The glorious bright leaves shine oh so dear 

And the perfect flowers make some great grain 


Their wonderful auras fill me with glee

Their marvelous pastels ring with much fun

Yet, that is not enough, they must be free

They yearn to feel more from one but the sun


They’re taken and torn till you feel just thorns

And only broken stems are left to mourn.

Hello! My name is Caroline Cronin. I am a freshman this year and this is my first year writing for The Gull. I enjoy many things like volleyball, rom-coms, baking, etc. I enjoy writing a lot. Specifically, I love to write review articles because, well, I love speaking my mind. I am looking forward to writing many articles this school year!
