“A Camp on Clouds” by Teddy Schwartz

Winner- Best Poetry

When in doubt, think of you, A place’o love
On sleepless nights fraught with fright I take
Your hand, and fly to you, my place above
The friends I made are bonds I cannot break
With a heart made heavy, I left your side
Your cabins were so bright and filled with life
This loss of you, I simply can’t abide
Although my time was often filled with strife
A lake sparkling, glistening of gold
I would dive in for a nice and long swim
Through the water never a hint of cold
when the day was done and the lights went dim
I retired to chat in bed not my own
We would while nights away, this was a home.
