April is for poetry! The Academy of American Poets established April as National Poetry Month in 1996. The purpose is to raise awareness and appreciation for poetry. We are pleased to share a poem by one of our current students.
Mia, a VAL English Language Learning student working with volunteer Charlene Gates, created a lovely acrostic poem in Gates’ Intermediate/Advanced Class. An acrostic poem is a poem in which certain letters in each line spell out a word or phrase. Enjoy Mia’s poem below!
The Sun could not warm the remains.
Power and money players–
Realize your misdeeds.
In the war
Give some hope for mothers, please
