Senior Class Poet Contestant, Laura Solomon: Forecasting

Thesis-picture-edited-copy-2edTo honor the University’s Senior-Class-Poet contestants and to commemorate National Poetry Month, the Library is publishing contestants’ poems on Falvey’s blog. The Library also has created posters for the contestants’ poems, which are displayed throughout the first floor.

Each spring semester, all seniors are encouraged to enter the Senior-Class-Poet Contest. The Department of English will announce the 2013 Senior-Class Poet later this semester.

Forecasting

by Laura Solomon

Expecting snow, but feeling rain

Expecting sun, but feeling shade

 

Forecasting is

risky, indeed

but it is wise

to expect

the unexpected

 

and isn’t it funny

that the Spanish word

tiempo

means both weather and time

because when they change

so do we

A Senior-Class-Poet contestant, Laura says “I enjoy poetry because it’s whimsical and it creates song in speech.”
