Poem In Your Pocket Day: The Color Spectrum Mantra

April is National Poetry Month and to honor it the City of New York sponsors an annual Poem In Your Pocket Day (April 14th). Click Here for the history and more information on Poem In Your Pocket Day.

The Color Spectrum Mantra by SEAA teaching artsit, Mansa K. Mussa and Arthur T. Wilson, is the perfect poem to help us celebrate Poem In Your Pocket Day.  Read the Color Spectrum below.

THE COLOR SPECTRUM

I AM A COLLAGE

ALL MY COLORS MAKE ME SING,

RED, YELLOW, BLUE, and GREEN

I AM WHAT THE RAINBOW EARTH BREATHES,

SUMMER, WINTER, SPRING

MY DREAMS

MY FAMILY,

AND MY COMMUNITY.

I AM A COLLAGE

I AM ALIVE!

AND SUCCESS COLORS MY IDENTITY!
