The Stairs By:Caitlyn Harris and Maggie Mashburn

Oh the stairs, how rough a life,

Stomped and trampled for such a long time.

Teachers and students for many years walked up and down you,

Oh, the stairs,

Teachers at work, students at school.

Working, learning.

How silent you are.

You don't make a peep.

Oh the stairs,

How special you are.

"The stairs" is about a person is closed off and silent. People walk all over other people everyday. It is a lyric poem. It is free verse. Personification in lines 7-8. "How silent you are you don't make a peep."
