Personal Space Poetry From a Unnamed First Grader

TOPICS | Parenting | Education Posted Monday, May 5, 2014 (527 views)

This awesome poem was recently photographed in a New York City public school on the Lower East Side by Jason Gardner. The school had received a grant for Gardner to take portraits of families that might not otherwise have been financially able. Jason took a picture and shared it on Facebook, where it caught the national eye. Especially that last line — in a crowded city like New York, you cannot underestimate the value of personal space.


Here's the poem:

We did the soft wind.

We danst slowly. We swrld aroned.

We danst soft. 

We lisin to the mozik.

We danst to the mozik.

We made personal space
