Two young poets write about red & purple

The following two poems were written by students in Rebecca Carreon's 1st and 2nd grade class at Drachman Montessori Magnet School in Tucson. These students worked with teaching artist Chalese "Chay the Poet" Potts as part of our Writing the Community program.

Dance tall

Sing right

Songs Chris

Sky Mia

Red horses

Salvatore Mauceli

Violent purple

It is violent yet beautiful

And moves like the waves

It smells like a plum on a sunny day

When people see it they feel fast asleep
