#PoetryBreak: How to Write a Poem

Girl in Woods (M.A. Reilly)


How to Write a Poem

celebrating Naomi Shihab Nye

 - by Kwame Alexander 



Hush.

Grab a pencil
some paper
spunk.

Let loose your heart --
raise your voice.

What if I have many voices?

Let them dance together
twist and turn
like best friends
in a maze
till you find
your way

to that one true word

(or two).
