Trenton Durflinger's Poem was published!


As you walk into the locker room
everyone is silent and you think about 
your job on the field tonight
as you put on your helmet, pads, and cleats
turning your music up as loud as you can 
trying to avoid the butterflies trapped inside you
walking out the door smacking the sign 
"I WILL" above the door
holding hands as you walk into the chilled air
hearing the crowd as they burst out yelling 
and screaming from each side of the field 
from our parents on tailgates to friends in the bleachers 
knowing you have worked so hard for this
giving it all you can every play 
no fear
this is my Friday night

Trenton Durflinger ~ 8th grade

Back in February, several of my students submitted poems to the Iowa Poetry Association 2013 Contest. Trenton Durflinger, an 8th grader, won 1st prize for his poem "Football." There were 257 entries for grades 5-8. Trenton's poem will be published in Lyrical Iowa 2013 this fall. ~ Mrs. Burke
