Poetry Month Kicks Off at San Francisco International High School!
By Lobo and Chupe, ACE Poetry Contest Mascots, San Francisco International High School
Is it really April 12th already? I thought these humans would have done a better job letting me – Lobo – know when it was time to resume my poetic duties. This winter has given me much to contemplate and even more snow to do it in. Thankfully, Riley scent (wink wink) news of the poetry contest, and I’m thrilled to announce that some of my favorite human children will be spilling ink into the shape of poems at San Francisco International High School this April.
Even more exciting, it’s my pleasure to announce Chupe, who is inspiring the youngsters to write (although he looks a bit young to be working, if you ask me). Chupe will take over from here, but I’ll be sure to send some inspiration from up in here in the mountains where I’m re-reading Jack London’s Call of the Wild. After all, someone will have to show them how it’s done.
Chupe here. Thanks for the introduction, Lobo! We miss you in San Francisco, but we’re hoping you’ll share a few of your favorite poems with us for inspiration. Here are a few lines from Leidy A’s poem:
“How could a little screen mean so much to someone?
Is the screen looking at you?
Or, are you looking at the screen?”
I can’t wait to share more with you!
