Poems for Two Voices - Neshaminy School District

Poems for Two Voices What is poetry for two or more voices? Poetry written for more than one person has been around for a LONG time. Though there is little documentation about when Poems for Two Voices actually came into being, most Christian churches have had a poetic liturgical reading somewhere in their services for over 400 years. Choral readings, they were called, were a back and forth between the worship leader and another parishioner or the entire congregation. No one seems to know when this form of poetry became popular as a contemporary form of poetry, but most poems specifically for two voices began to be published with some frequency in late 1980s and early 1990s. AND Poetry written for two or more voices is a poem that is written for two or more people to perform. The poetry usually has two columnsone for

each person who is reading the poem. The persons reading the poem will each take their column. Sometimes the poet wants the two readers to say something at the same time, then the poet will write the words on the same line in each column. Its a lot like writing a dialogue for two people.

A Graduation Poem for Two By Stephanie Klose I am a teacher I am a student Twenty years my trade Seven classrooms Fourteen classrooms Seven hundred children Have touched my life. Every day I come My choice, my call Fourteen teachers Have touched my life. Every day I come They make me I'm glad I'm here I come to teach I'm glad I'm here.

I come to learn I come to earn a paycheck I come to earn my diploma I come to be with I come to be with my friends my friends I work very hard They make me work hard Lesson plans, forms and more forms Projects, exams, oral reports I have to correct I have to write so many papers so many papers When do I have time When do I have time for my personal life? for my personal life?

I HATE HOMEWORK! I love my students Sometimes I think the kids hate me Sometimes they make me so mad Like when it's only been ten minutes since lunch and they ask to go to the restroom and I know it's because they are really worried about how their hair looks... I HATE HOMEWORK! My teachers hate me Most of my teachers

are pretty cool Sometimes they make me so mad Well, they won't let us talk I write about what's important to me! or when they won't talk or when they won't stop talking (silence) It's like they don't think we have a life and we should just be able to stop it when the bell rings and start talking about what they want us to talk about instead of what is important to us.

(glare) They can make me laugh They help me stay young New music New slang I like to play I like to joke and put people on "I love school.....not!" I try to challenge them They challenge me Challenge their perceptions of the world and themselves I try to keep them on their toes Sometimes I'm so proud of them They work hard They rise to my challenge

They succeed I feel so proud All seven hundred I challenge them back I try to keep them on their toes Sometimes I get good grades I work hard on something I succeed I feel so proud have moved on It's time to move on I worry about them when they go It's kind of scary I hope I've provided them each with little something that

will make the way a little smoother And exciting And I am often reassured as I grow to know my students each year because invariably I find something uniquely wonderful and special in each one This gives me hope Because Because They are the future I am the future.
