Young Writers Camp 2016: A Three Voice Poem
I am Georgia, Sarah and Kristin
Everyone has a song to sing
A story to tell
Three voices conducting
Memories, Neighborhoods and Maps
Our symphony’s first notes sounded on Mango Street
With solos and spotlights
On Bio Poems
And the simple notes of the Essence of an Object
Inspiration, Music and Voice
Were found in uptown Mt. Lebanon
Twenty-six voices played in unison
As we grew into a symphony of writers
As each unique instrument
Called and responded
One perfect note
Two perfect weeks
