In 1996, President Clinton declared April to be National Poetry Month. The purpose is to “celebrate the vitality and diversity of the voices reflected in works of today’s poetry.”
Below is a poem written as a group project by the participants in North Star’s Day Habilitation program in Waterloo today, April 28, 2014:
This is North Star, It’s fun and exciting.
I like to come here to work.
It’s cool, we have morning social;
It’s better than lunch.
We plant flowers and go to music,
We cook treats and make crafts.
Bingo and movies are fun, too.
And don’t forget newsletters.
