Celebrating #BannedBooksWeek, at Riverwest’s Stonefly, with the ACLU of Wisconsin - there were readings and “banned characters costume contest”!

If one advances confidently in the direction of his dreams, and endeavors to live the life which he has imagined, he will meet with a success unexpected in common hours…In proportion as he simplifies his life, the laws of the universe will appear less complex…if you have built castles in the air, your work need not be lost; that is where they should be. Now put the foundations under them.
– Henry David Thoreau

Life begins at the hop, Antoine Henault

yes, more kid poetry

Johlena, Age 10
Just Be You
You don’t have to be rich or smart.
You might even be good at art.
You don’t have to wear cute clothes too.
Nobody’s perfect, not me or you.
Don’t pretend, just be my friend.
All you have to do is be you!
(from SCORES MKE)

Even kids know what we need.

Justin, Age 10
Peace
I wish that
War ended
And there
Was more
Peace
In the world.
Children  everywhere
need care.
They need their 
Moms and dads
For love.
Countries need to
Get together.
War needs to end.
Come on presidents!
We can do better!!
(from SCORES MKE)

more great poetry

Roberto, Age 9
Roberto
I am like fire,
burning when my brother gets me mad.
I am helpful,
doing jobs for my mom.
I move swiftly,
like a cheetah on the soccer field.
I am the sunset.
Colors fade when I leave the room.
I am a shadow.
Unnoticeable.
 
(all these poems I’m sharing are from SCORES MKE)

another great kid’s poem.

Leylani, Age 9
Me
I’m really pretty.
I’m really nice to people.
I’m my own flower.

DONUT POEM

Am reading poems written by kids, all part of the SCORES MKE program and this one…yeah.

Adrian, Age 9
Donuts
Donuts.
Delicious and chewy,
round and soft,
sweet and yummy,
brown, white and pink,
good for breakfast.
Where is my milk?
