Poetry has the power to move people, especially when it's said aloud. That belief fuels Aidyn Reid, a high school senior from Colorado Springs. She placed second in the national "Poetry Out Loud" competition on Sunday.

Reid attends Fountain Valley School of Colorado. This is the second year in a row she's made the national finals. That's when we spoke with her about her love of poetry.
