Finding Yesterday – A Teen Poem

by Anna

 April is National Poetry Month and in celebration, we’re hosting several teen poetry programs here at the Central Library throughout vacation week. Yesterday’s workshop was called “Poetry In Hand” and incorporated Black Out poetry, Found poetry, and Magnetic Poetry.

The poem below was written by Anonymous at the Central Branch yesterday using Magnetic Poetry:

“FINDING YESTERDAY”

ONLY THIS LOVE

HEALS YOU AND I

IN OUR SLEEP

WE SHARE OUR PLEASURE

FLYING INTO A NIGHT SKY

THROUGH A TRANSITION

WE COME BACK

YOU AND I LINGER

THEN LET YOU AND I

HAVE ANOTHER
