If you shop Germantown Avenue this week, please be on the lookout for poetry dispensers offering free "pocket poems" written by our Lower School boys. On Friday, four student leaders from Grade 5 delivered a box to Roots and shared some of their original verse. #schbards #nationalpoetrymonth #sharingcreativity

It's hard to say goodbye to #nationalpoetrymonth. We've been sending our coffee subscribers poems all month and we've loved hearing about the joy it brought them. Major thanks to @poetry_society for their work to place poetry at the crossroads of American life. Our days are better with poems in them.

Just a little something sweet we whipped up to ring in April as #NationalPoetryMonth#Keats #endymion #beauty #poetry

For the final Sunday of my series for #nationalpoetrymonth featuring poems by people who have been or are currently incarcerated and enrolled in the incredible Prison-to-College-Pipeline program, I want to dedicate this week to the incredible work of this program:
In 2011, John Jay College of Criminal Justice President Jeremy Travis posed the following question: “If over 700,000 people are leaving our prisons, how should the nation’s educational institutions be organized to help them make a successful transition to free society?” The result of his query is the Prison-to-College Pipeline (P2CP), an innovative educational program founded by John Jay English professor Baz Dreisinger. P2CP is administered by the Prisoner Reentry Institute in partnership with Hostos Community College and provides prisoners with access to public university-level education, mentorship, and community support to increase their chances of timely graduation and employment upon release. ◾️ In the words of founder @bazdreisinger "We always talk about the Prison-to-College Pipeline as a family, not a mere program. Yes, we have changed lives through education. Yes, we have broken barriers by demanding schools, not prisons. Yes, our students are among the most brilliant, committed, passionate people whom anyone--myself included--could be lucky enough to know. But above all else, it is this family-building--with love as our cement--that is our greatest achievement. P2CP proves every day that love and families can transcend their traditional incarnations if we allow them to. Thanks to it, I am blessed to have a family like this one, and such profound love in my life."
This week's poet, Kevin Estevez in his own words. " I was born a leader, raised a winner, forged into a villain, but reclaimed as a hero." He is a business management major at Hostos Community College, CUNY.
Thank you to my soul sisters on this project @bazdreisinger & @kimothyjoy and please donate to P2CP LINK IN MY BIO! Every bit counts. Let's take care of each other.

As a fence, it is a masterpiece, and will shut off the rabble and all vagabonds and hungry men and all wandering children looking for a place to play. #newalbanyohio #nationalpoetrymonth

Do you fear me? Because I've been kissed by the sun? Because my crowns untamed? Because I stand up against those who are wrong?

The land I belong to,
The land I will die for,
The land that defines my identity.

This is my country &
My PAKISTAN…. Spread optimism
instead of Negativity

Live for nothing
Die for something…

Month of revival of
The PROMISES…. Month of
