“The Edge of Beauty” is the result of a group project “Paint Chip Poetry” assignment in Elizabeth Pellicane’s 4th Block Creative Writing class.


On the cliff’s edge once bloomed

Lush flowers with sweet nectar consumed

Their beauty and scent filled the air

A paradise beyond compare


Visitors came from far and wide

To revel in the stunning sight outside

But one day something changed

And the soaring cliff became estranged


The air grew thick with pollution

Causing destruction and confusion

The flowers all withered and died

Leaving the cliff barren with no charm to abide

The flowers became fossils

And the damage done was rather colossal


A once pleasing place for the visitors to be taken aback

Became a disgraceful reminder of the care for nature that we lack
