Midnight Faces

As the clock strikes midnight,
Many faces are asleep.
At the strike of midnight,
It can be very bleak.
People don't notice the faces around.
Even while they wander on the ground.
This world is made of faces.
Many people don't see.
If I were you I wouldn't peek.
I would just fall back asleep.
Because the faces can be scary.
Even sometimes very hairy.
As the clock strikes down.
A new day has begun.

by Michael Mandel, age 11

  6. how talented an 11 year old is to write a great poem and the photos as usual are awesome

  7. Like you, I spend a lot of time staring up at buildings (and nearly walking into things because I'm not watching where I'm going), it's a whole other world up there. We have some quite scary looking gargoyles up on some of our older churches.

  8. These gargoyles are great Angela, An appropriate post near Halloween.
    The poem is excellent from an 11 year old..!
