    by Maisie, age 11

    Up the stairs-
    feeling the platform rock.
    Ropes quivering,
    clips clinking.
    One foot gently in front of
    the other.
    Swaying in the breeze,
    I walk across the rope.
    Feel the ropes sway.
    Stop.
    One foot
    gently
    in front of the other
    again.
    Feeling wind-
    urging myself forward.
    Feel a sway as
    someone walks
    behind me.
    A rush of excitement.
    My feet on the platform
    reaching carefully-
    stepping over.
    Clink, clink.
    I can move on.
    I step on a rope-
    swaying.
    Now for the next.
    Stepping-
    Swaying-
    Wobbling-
    Continuing.
    Back and forth.
    Stepping up.
    The platform,
    firm and solid
    beneath my feet.
    One solid beam.
    Going forward.
    Wobbling-
    Bouncing.
    Reaching up.
    Stepping forward.
    Click, click.
    Clack, clack.
    Forward.
    Continue.
    Bounce.
    Rock.
    Sway.
    I feel it all
    as I walk
    across the beam.
    Platform again.
    Clink, clank.
    Grabbing on.
    Going down.
    Wind rushing around me
    swinging and swaying
    down the zipline.
    Hanging,
    dangling,
    going down-
    Standing up.
    Confidence surrounding me.
    I did it.
