\u201cBicycle,\u201d a poem by 13-year-old Wilton resident Meredith Macey, was published in the December 2014 issue of national children\u2019s magazine Highlights. \u201cI thought it might be fun to submit my work since I knew they published student work in the \u2018Your Own Page\u2019 section,\u201d said Meredith, a seventh grader at St. Luke\u2019s School in New Canaan. \u201cEach month, Highlights receives hundreds of submissions,\u201d she said, \u201cand only publishes a few, so it was a huge honor to see my poem published.\u201d Meredith\u2019s \u201cBicycle\u201d poem was also published in the Atlantic region compilation of A Celebration of Poets in 2013. Meredith said she writes a lot of poetry with subjects that range from her family to seasons. She also recently finished a short chapter book about a girl who is a skier. \u201cI love writing. It is one of my favorite hobbies,\u201d she said. \u201cI like to write about things going on in my life and create new characters around them. In writing, you can create anything.\u201d In addition to writing, Meredith enjoys skiing, computer programming, musical theater, tennis and cross-country running. Bicycle I sit here freezing in the winter, The life sinking out of me As my tires become flat. Wait patiently, wait patiently. Days nag on till summer. Have they forgotten about me? I am propped in a corner. Nobody to keep me company Except that eight-legged hairy dude. He sits on my handlebars. Have I been left here to rot? Like an old car left alone to rust. Wait patiently, wait patiently.
