Radio Poets

Every April KALW partners with SFUSD students

Carol Munos, student-poet at San Francisco's E.R. Taylor Elementary.

For National Poetry Month, KALW and America SCORES Bay Area have teamed up to bring you the voices of young poets from San Francisco’s public schools.

America SCORES works in the Bay Area’s most challenged public elementary schools, using soccer and poetry to help young “poet-athletes” discover the benefits of working together as a team, the joy of physical activity, and the fun in reading and writing.

Throughout April, you can hear these young people read their poems on KALW.

This year's series was produced by Kevin Vance, Genaro Arana, Antonio Cisneros and Matt Martin, and features students from Paul Revere, Marshall, Garfield, Junipero Serra, E.R. Taylor, and Tenderloin Community schools in San Francisco.

Happyness

By Pamela N. Alvarez Sosa, Junipero Serra

Happyness is when you have a lot of joy.

It's when your mom comes back from Mexico.

It's when you go somewhere for the first time.

Peace and Positivity

By Marco Gongora, Paul Revere Elementary School

Peace should spread around the world

like jam on toast...

Radio Poets 2018: Melany Perez, "Stars"

Stars

By Melany Perez, E.R. Taylor Elementary School

The stars look beautiful all night

I always get ready to see them

shine at dawn, shine so bright at night.

  

Rock Climber 

By Johnny Rodrguez, Marshall Elementary School   

 

  I used to rely on the hardness and the safety it gave me until, it disappeared.    

Now, I rely on my fingers who keep me safe and stable.

One slip and I fall to my doom.
