Below is Charlie’s sample poem.

Music Class Recital

Her 9-year-old tongue slips between her lips. Her eyes bore through the music sheet as her tiny hands try to find the notes and keep the beat. We parents on the edge of our seats hold our breath till we hear the last note fall into place

and then applaud.
