In June 2015, the students running this blog participated in a poetry and translation project with some 8th graders from a nearby town. The younger students wrote poems for a Spoken Word poetry unit and then the RHAM students translated these poems into Spanish. In September, the AP (Advanced Placement) art students at RHAM will use these poems to create visual representations of the work to post to this blog. Additionally, students recorded recitations of the poetry which we also hope to post here. We hope that everyone enjoys this project. Thank you, Amy Nocton, Rochelle Marcus, and Beverley Fisher
Copy of Two and 2 (Jonas)
Love and life two of the most intertwined things in the world
love equates to more life, and the more life,
the more love and happiness. Two others would be misery and death,
for all things in the world there must be an
opposite. For love and life the opposite is misery and
death, misery and death are a perfect match
when people die there is great sadness and misery
and with misery there is death.
The two biggest feelings that come with these
two pairs of opposites are
happiness and sadness
if there is anything I have learned its that all things
good and bad come in twos.
Just like war and peace, guns and roses,
and Santa and the Boogie man,
Everything comes in twos
Like me I have two parents
and two lungs, kidneys, and two intestines
even though one is large and the other is small.
I also have two legs and two arms which are needed
for my everyday life. Like Mars who has 2 moons and
and magician needs a bunny or how Santa needs an Elf,
Everything comes in twos.
