Riddle Poem

It is a lake, reflecting the mountains
in the distance 
upon snow, upon rain, it protects me. 
On the worst of days, on the worst 
of nights it stays clean.  Clean as 
the water in the bottle. 
It’s as smooth as, smooth as the best 
leather shoe.

By Jim Bob, Fifth Grade, Hawthorne Elementary School, Missoula, Montana
