The Beautiful Changes

One wading a Fall meadow finds on all sides  
The Queen Anne’s Lace lying like lilies
On water; it glides
So from the walker, it turns
Dry grass to a lake, as the slightest shade of you  
Valleys my mind in fabulous blue Lucernes.

The beautiful changes as a forest is changed  
By a chameleon’s tuning his skin to it;  
As a mantis, arranged
On a green leaf, grows
Into it, makes the leaf leafier, and proves  
Any greenness is deeper than anyone knows.

Your hands hold roses always in a way that says  
They are not only yours; the beautiful changes  
In such kind ways,  
Wishing ever to sunder
Things and things’ selves for a second finding, to lose  
For a moment all that it touches back to wonder.

Anna Malachowski

      I am currently a senior at Hartford Union High School. I have been involved in many co-curriculars during my journey through high school including student atheltic traing team, gymnastics, softball, swim, and cross country team. I am currently the president of the HUHS Student Council. I am a member of the Bio-Med S.M.A.R.T. team. I have been a member of the National Honor Society for two years. Ouside of school, you can find me downhill skiing at Little Switzerland or show skiing on the Badgerland Ski Team. I enjoy attending Church with family and friends, volunteering whenever possible, and reading when I have free time. I enjoy venturing outdoors, no matter the season. I will be attending Marquette University next year and studying dentristy in hopes of one day becoming a dentist. Fun fact: I have an orange tabby cat named Louis who spends his precious time racing around the house like a horse and begging for food at the dinner table like a dog.
