The Five SensesPosted by George Seferidis
During our poetry unit, students not only write and analyze poems, they are also encouraged to seek out authentic opportunities to publish and share their work. While Pen & Paper, is our home-grown outlet, we also encourage students to submit their work to national contests. We are proud to announce that 8th-grader Andrew participated in the national Carl Sandburg Student Poetry Contest and has won 2nd place! This annual contest produced by the Carl Sandburg Home and the National Park Service celebrates student writing based on themes from the poetry of the celebrated poet. This year’s theme was “joy,” and Andrew’s poem captures moments of joy experienced through the five senses. The omniscient speaker of the poem captures a collection of seemingly unrelated points in time that when stitched together convey the universal power and presence of joy in the world. Congratulations, Andrew!
