Indian Children

by Annette Wynne

Where we walk to school each day
Indian children used to play —
All about our native land,
Where the shops and houses stand.

And the trees were very tall,
And there were no streets at all,
Not a church and not a steeple —
Only woods and Indian people.

Only wigwams on the ground,
And at night bears prowling round —
What a different place today
Where we live and work and play!

World Make Way

New Poems Inspired by Art from The Metropolitan Museum

Edited by Lee Bennett Hopkins

“Painting is poetry that is seen rather than felt, and poetry is painting that is felt rather than seen.” – Leonardo da Vinci

Based on this simple statement by Leonardo, 18 poets have written new poems inspired by some of the most popular works in the collection of The Metropolitan Museum of Art, which presents over 5,000 years of art from every corner of the world. The collection represents a wide range of poets and artists, including acclaimed children’s poets Marilyn Singer, Alma Flor Alda, and Carole Boston Weatherford and popular artists such as Mary Cassatt, Fernando Botero, Winslow Homer, and Utagawa Hiroshige.

Accompanying the artwork and specially commissioned poems is an introduction, biographies of each poet and artist, and an index.

Lee Bennett Hopkins is an award-winning author and poet who has published more than 100 books of poetry.

68voces: The Fireflies that Embellish the Trees

Matlatzinca. Las luciérnagas que embellecen los árboles from Hola Combo on Vimeo.

Mi grandfather used to tell me that, when rain season started in June, fireflies arrived with it.
They made the trees happy so people’s hearts also shined.
All of this during Saint Peter’s Day.
The chimer rang the church’s bell loudly while the fireflies, lead by torches, arrived to to the trees to make them happy with their little lights. Trees forgot about sadness and beard fruit.
The people in town kept singing until torches were extinguished or fireflies stopped shinning.
Then the night was dark but the trees were healed.
Now, the absence of the chants and ocotes has made the trees sad again, but it’s our job to light the torches again, sing to Saint Peter and make our hearts shine along the fireflies to make the trees happy again.

68voces: The Wind

Ayapaneco. El Viento from Hola Combo on Vimeo.

Back then, there was a drunk man who fall down wherever he went. He even got inside some houses.One day, he stepped on a cornfield and destroyed it.He went on and knocked down whatever was on his way: trees, houses, and every parcel of land. He was considered a worker in this world because that drunk man became the wind, that’s why now the wind wanders around as he pleases. Just like the drunk man who used to destroyed everything on its way. Since then, that drunk man is the wind we feel.
