Poem In Your Pocket: Live Poetry Cafe 2014 Day 2

Poem In Pocket Day 2 (6)Yesterday, I posted about our annual Poem In Your Pocket Day Cafe.  Today, 13 more classes came to share poetry into our open microphone.  It was a non-stop day filled with wonderful words.  As usual, there were many special moments like a student sharing a poem in Chinese and having his class give him the biggest round of snaps I’ve ever heard.  Listen to their poetry sessions at the links below.
