The Lonely Glimmer of the Moon My name is Maddie Slogoff. Maddie started Writopia when she was 7 years old, and is now 11. In addition, she takes pride in all areas of the athletics: soccer, tennis, gymnastics, and skiing. Although she enjoys athletics, she loves nothing more than the arts: writing, performing, and singing. She has finished numerous stories including: "When You Kiss Me Goodnight," "Evergreen Hartly," "Believe," and "Something You Never Regret." She is currently working on several stories and poems that are under the category of paranormal and poetry.

“She hums a lullaby for the people to drift off to sleep,
into the world of dreams.
Where the world’s sins and rainy days are forgotten,
where there is a new glimmer of hope for each and every one of us.”

The stars on navy black nights

wink at humans who stare up at the lonely glimmer of the moon.

The mystery girl sits on the dusty pewter gray surface

her lanky legs hanging down, dangling above the world she knew so well.

She hums a lullaby for the people to drift off to sleep,

into the world of dreams.

Where the world’s sins and rainy days are forgotten,

where there is a new glimmer of hope for each and every one of us.

The map in the center sets us on our path to destiny,

and at the end of the day,

the mystery girl dances among the stars.
