WE ARE CURRENTLY IN THE MIDDLE OF SALISBURY POETRY WEEK AND JIMMY THAT IN ITSELF IS REASON TO CELEBRATE ESPECIALLY WHEN YOU HAVE THIS WEEK’S POET AND RESIDENTS JOINING US JANE SATTERFIELD IS HERE ALONG WITH SALISBURY MIDDLE SCHOOL ENGLISH LANGUAGE ARTS TEACHER TERROR ELEGANT THANK YOU BOTH FOR BEING HERE THE SOFTWARE MAGAZINE THANKS FOR HAVING US YEAH SO FOR THOSE WHO DON’T KNOW WHAT IS A POET A RESIDENT POET AND RESIDENTS. A POET AND RESIDENTS IS A POET THAT WE BROUGHT IN FROM FROM OUTSIDE OF OUR COMMUNITY TO COME IN AND TEACH OUR STUDENTS AT OUR COMMUNITY ABOUT POETRY SO JANE HAS BEEN IN THE PAST 24 HOURS I THINK SHE HAS TAUGHT OVER 200 STUDENTS IN VARIOUS WORKSHOPS WE’VE DONE WORKSHOPS AT PARKSIDE HIGH SCHOOL AT JAMES BENNETT HIGH SCHOOL AND AT WHY HIGH SO FAR. AND SHE’S BEEN TO SALISBURY MIDDLE AND SHE’S TAUGHT THREE CLASSES THERE AS WELL AS THE NEXT GEN ACADEMY SO SHE HAS BEEN EVERYWHERE OKAY SO JANE THEN I GOT TO ASK YOU ALL KNOW THE ANSWER SEEMS A LITTLE OBVIOUS YOU’VE GOT AWARDS YOU’VE GOT HONORS YOU’VE GOT RECOGNITIONS HIS POETRY SOMETHING. COMES EASILY POETRY IS LIKE ANY CRAFT WHERE THERE’S BIG LEARNING CURVE AT FIRST AND THEN IT BECOMES EASIER THE MORE YOU PRACTICE BUT IT DOES TAKE PRACTICE THAT’S FOR SURE SO HOW DO YOU DECIDE WHAT YOU WRITE ABOUT IN ANY GIVEN POEM THAT’S A GREAT QUESTION. THE POET SYLVIA PLATH ONCE SAID THAT NATURE IS A GIFT TO YOUNG POETS AND I THINK THAT’S TRUE OF ANY POET ON THE WORLD AROUND US IS FULL OF SUCH BEAUTY AND I THINK THAT MANY POETS RIGHT TO HONOR THE PEOPLE IN PLACES THAT THEY LOVE DO YOU THINK POETRY IS STILL ALIVE AND WELL. ABSOLUTELY CERTAINLY HERE IN POETRY IN SALISBURY IT’S ALIVE AND WELL. BUT OF COURSE ACROSS THE NATION THEY’RE WONDERFUL PROGRAMS ITS NATIONAL POETRY MONTH SO POETRY COMMUNITIES ARE CELEBRATING EVERYWHERE AND ALSO THERE IS A WONDERFUL POETRY OUTLOUD COMPETITION THAT IT RUNS NATIONALLY THAT INVOLVES A LOT OF YOUNG PEOPLE LEARNING. TO CELEBRATE OUR OUR TRADITION TERROR. WHY DO YOU THINK IT’S IMPORTANT TO BRING POETS LIKE JANE TO THE AREA DURING A WEAK SALISBURY POETRY WEEK WELL LIKE JANE SAID IT IS NATIONAL POETRY MONTH AND I STUDIED WAS ABOUT LUCILLE CLIFTON AND SHE WROTE A VERY FAMOUS POEM CALLED WON’T YOU CELEBRATE WITH ME AND I LOVE CLIFTON’S TAKE ON THINGS BECAUSE SHE LOVED TO CELEBRATE LIFE AND SHE SAID SOME PEOPLE LIKE TO BE POETS MORE THAN THEY LIKE TO CELEBRATE SO WE NEED TO REMEMBER THE CELEBRATION OF THE WRITTEN WORD AND WHAT WE ARE CELEBRATING BECAUSE I THINK I THINK WE’VE LOST OUR HUMANITY TO A LARGE EXTENT WITH THE DIGITAL AGE AND CELL PHONES AND DEVICES SO POETRY IS A WAY OF ALLOWING US TO COMMUNICATE WITH ONE ANOTHER. THROUGH THE SPOKEN IN THE WRITTEN WORD.
