2 Elm - Choc and Poetry

Chocolate Treats and Poetry

2ElmThe famous abstract artist Salvadore Dali once said that reality is a state of depression. It is only in our imagination that we can be truly free.
In their English class this week, students of 2 Elm were set the challenge to use the gift of their imagination to create poetry that reflects either something that fills them with hope or with horror in this life.

After studying ‘Butterflies’ by Rosita Boland about the juxtaposition of the brutal violence and yet beauty in the aftermath of war, the class were invited to put pen to paper and write short lyrics about memories that had powerful meaning for them.
