If you’re in the Delridge area before June 14th, drop into Youngstown Cultural Arts Center and check out Frog Hollow’s poetry exhibit! It’s in the hallway gallery, on the lockers near the end of the hall.
Our poems are about creatures — living, extinct, and legendary — and other aspects of the wild world. Some are acrostics. All have soundplay and art. The class wrote these poems with me in response to reading Lost Words by Robert MacFarlane and Jackie Morris. If you want an excellent entrance into poetry and nature literacy through pure wonder and beauty, check out this book. It’s inspired our curriculum all winter and spring.
Anyhow, here are some quick photos of the exhibit. I’m so thrilled to be back in the classroom with these fine young writers next year. Come join us make more magic.
