Poetry does just not appear out of thin air. It begins with a spark of inspiration. Because our campers and staff inspire us to “play more and sit less,” we thought it fitting to write a poem for all our Rockbrook girls. Whether you’re a camper in kindergarten, a staff member at a university, or an alumna crossing your “t”s and dotting your “i”s out in the “real world”, this one goes out to you….
An Ode to a Rockbrook Girl
A Rockbrook Girl.
She’s as sweet as a marshmallow (and fiery enough to melt one).
Her sneakers are muddy and her smile is bright.
It’s hard to slow her down!
She’s zippy, peppy, and over-the-moon.
She’s loyal, courageous, and true.
She always stands out in a crowd.
Rain or shine, count her in!
She splishes and splashes and sploshes and takes the world by storm.
A Rockbrook girl is a mover and a shaker. She slam dunks, flips and flops.
She’s a friend and a joy. She’s happy as a clam!
She’s a sweet treat. She plays outside.
She explores the world up-side-down, right-side-up, and side-to-side.
A Rockbrook Girl leaves no stone unturned.
The world is just a little bit better because she’s a part of it.
