Inspired by the Poetry in Motion Project where poetry was displayed on the walls of subway trains in New York City, the second graders of Mrs. Varadarajan’s class decided to post poems they had composed in public spaces at school, like, the hallways, in the cafateria, in front of the office, the bathrooms, the gym. Basically, the idea was to make poetry not just lie quietly tucked away in the backs of library shelves, but make it accessible to more and more people to read and enjoy.
