Students’ Poetry for National Poetry Month

Each Day

Each day I try

when no one sees.

Each day I cry

with broken dreams.

Each time I write

a poem or sprong,

Each time I think

a depressing poem can’t

go wrong.

…B. G.

Thanks to all the students who wrote poems; we’ll have another go at it next year!
