My Poem

   I chooce the Korczak Ziolkowski  because he did some many things. He was a sculptor, a planner, engineer, architect, surveyor, driller, dynamiter, bulldozer operator and master of many vocations. He was also a philosopher and historian. He was a true pioneer who, in 1947 at the age of 39 started his greatest sculpture, the Crazy Horse Memorial in the Black Hills of South Dakota. Chief Crazy Horse was the leader of the Sioux Nation that defeated General Custer in 1876.

The Boston born Korczak Ziolkowski
 Was  known as a sculptor
He was also an engineer, a philosopher, and a historian
He was known for his sculpture the “Crazy Horse Memorial”

Being an orphan
 Living in a foster home did not stop him
He knew what he wanted to do in life

Without ever taking any lessons in sculpture and architecture
Self-taught and determination
was his key to success

He was appointed first prize for his work "Paderewski"
That he very much deserved
A man with a heart full of dedication
The greatest sculptor known to have lived

Does hard work and dedication really pay off?
That’s a very good question to ask
Ziolkowski made the answer very simple
If it worked for him
It can work for all of us!
