Glen Ivy Poetry Contest Winners

1st Place:

Glen Ivy
By Erin S.

The Grotto is green,
Club Mud is brown,
At my favorite Glen Ivy,
There's so much to be found.

Get a massage or facial,
Let the stress melt away,
Bring all of your friends,
For a memorable day.

So pack on the mud,
Float in the pool,
Laugh and relax,
Forget work or school.

You'll be so pampered,
From your head to toe,
And at the end of the day,
Never want to go!

It's life at the spa,
Part of my motto,
Enjoy the poem,
If I win, see you in the Grotto!

2nd Place:

My Favorite Things
Mrs. Shane H.

Lavender sugar scrub and luscious facials
Eucalyptus wraps and polished toenails
Glen Ivy gift cards tied up with strings
These are a few of my favorite things

Steam room and spa rooms and crystalline pools
Mud baths and mineral baths enchant like jewels
Stress floats away on dragonfly wings
These are a few of my favorite things

Nibbling and noshing at Cafe Sole
Field greens and dressing prepared by gourmets
Birds of paradise burst bright blossoms of springs
These are a few of my favorite things

When the job bites
When the kids whine
When I'm feeling sad
I simply mend myself at Glen Ivy Spa
And then I don't feel so bad.

3rd Place:

Crystal C.

I look out the window and it's that time of year, the time to bring out bathing suits cause Glen Ivy is here!
I'll book a nice facial or even a back massage, time to put my stress aside cause ladies were off to the spa!
No more yelling, screaming, or pitter patter of little feet, it's the end of my work week and lemme tell ya I'M BEAT!
I'm ready to get pampered now & covered in piles of mud, close my eyes and reminisce of times when I was young!
Here at Glen Ivy I can always count on one thing--To close my eyes, relax & remember here I'm always STRESS FREE!

Thank you to all who sent in their amazing Glen Ivy poems! I hope that you all had as much fun writing them as I did reading them!
