Elizabeth Howell
Colourful Bar


Elizabeth Howell says of herself:

"I was born in 1983 and began writing poems at the age of eight. In 1997, I won the District Award of the Marion Drysdale Poetry Contest, and in 2001 I won the District Award for the Royal Canadian Legion Youth Poetry Contest. I enjoy reading poets such as Robert Frost and T.S. Eliot."




I own a collection of masks


They're heavy but I carry them around

They hurt but I wear them


        The masks are





They hide what's inside


Don't get too close

Don't peel back the mask


You may get scared

I may get scared


I'll be what you want me to be

Believe the mask and I'll believe it too

I know no other way.


( For C. )
