Get Your Poetry On!

Teens at the Jamestown Bluffs branch created poetry for National Poetry Month in April. At a "poetry station" they shared their words, rhymes and thoughts. Here are some of the fabulous words they left behind:

Come darkness, Come light
Thou both mark day and night, life and death
Here and now.

Life may only seem and
Look as a dream. But you
Have the faith to know
It's all real. Go for any and
Everything in life!

We laugh.
We cry
We live,
We die.
Some things
Are just meant
To be.
Happiness is
Never too far

Of all things to love
I Love myself first
For it is within this
Framework that I
Can Truly Love others
