A message on today's poems from Peter Franklin
These poems...these creations...are from juniors and seniors at Swampscott High School, in Swampscott, MA. The authors represented in this brief collection have shared with you their inner-most thoughts…they have invited you to stand in their shoes for a short while. They may be comfortable shoes, and fit perfectly. Or they may fit awkwardly and feel somewhat painful. That is wonderful! Some of these students write for pleasure. Some write when asked to write. Some write for therapy. Still others write because their poetic muse is loud and boisterous. Creative Writing is, when it’s at its best, a raw and unvarnished look at the world…a snapshot of what’s important, and what’s not, to each writer. Enjoy the snapshots.
