POETRY OUT LOUD Deadline — This Friday!

by:  Alex Truppi at 12/18/2013

Dear Teachers & Friends,


Alex Truppi, Education Manager, Curriculum & Instruction

In the midst of this busy season, it's always important to take a step back and remember what we really value in life — who are the people and what are the experiences that truly matter? Can we simply stop for a moment to recognize what is truly important? Moments in which we are fully present can be hard to find, especially during this time of year. As the new year approaches, we hope that we can all follow some beautiful advice from Chilean poet Pablo Neruda: Keep still and quiet long enough to count to twelve and breathe.

Now we will count to twelve
and we will all keep still
for once on the face of the earth;
let's not speak in any language;
let's stop for a second,
and not move our arms so much.

It would be an exotic moment
without rush, without engines;
we would all be togehter
in a sudden strangeness.

Fishermen in the cold sea
would not harm whales
and the man gathering salt
would not look at his hurt hands.

Those who prepare green wars,
wars with gas, wars with fire,
victories with no survivors,
would put on clean clothes
and walk about with their brothers
in the sade, doing nothing.

What I want should not be confused
with total inactivity.

Life is what it is about...

If we were not so single-minded
about keeping our lives moving,
and for once could do nothing,
perhaps a huge silence
might interrupt this sadness
of never understanding ourselves
and of threatening ourselves with
death.

Now I'll count up to twelve
and you keep quiet and I will go.

— "Keeping Quiet," by Pablo Neruda

As you prepare for the winter break, please remember that the deadline to register a school for Poetry Out Loud is this Friday, December 20, 2013. Schools MUST register on our website to participate in the Massachusetts competition. After you register, you will receive an email confirmation from PoetryOutLoud@huntingtontheatre.bu.edu. You will also receive a teacher's packet via snail mail full of great resources created by the NEA that will help you integrate POL into your curriculum. Remember that we're also here to help with ideas or feedback, so please feel free to contact us with any questions you may have.

We hope you have a wonderful last few days of school leading up to some much deserved time off! But remember: Register for Poetry Out Loud before you go!

Happy Holidays, from all of us at the Huntington!
