Child Prodigy Writer, Poet, Humanitarian

asdf

Not too many people can say that they’ve published multiple books, given inspirational lectures on reading and writing, and are considered humanitarians by the ripe age of 11. Meet Adora Svitak, the 11-year old prodigy writer, who was first discovered for her exceptional writing talent at age 6.

It was interesting to see her speak about her thoughts on former President Bush, as well as President Obama. Smart kid.

Here’s a poem titled, “The Philosopher” that she wrote:

The Philosopher

In his candlelit chamber…
The philosopher works…
Day and night…
Without a rest.

It is great research…
But never credited…
Nothing has worked…
Nobody has paid attention…
But this time they will.

And the philosopher tires…
But he keeps on…
He keeps on through the night.

And on the morrow…
The philosopher wakes…
And studies his books.

A scroll and a stick…
That will tell him…
A ruler made by Merlin…
Will give him success.

And so his work is credited…
Like the philosopher dreamed it would be…
And, his work done, he fell into the
Endless Slumber…
Which he well deserves.

Amazing.
