When I took this photo of the post in a yard I pass each day on my way into school, I had no idea what it was. I had passed it numerous times and wondered. I took the picture, thinking it would eventually be an odd shot.
In our staff notes for the following week was a note that the fourth grade would be going on a walking field trip to the poetry post.
Once it had been so identified, I questioned the teacher who was taking the kids to the post. Here is the background: the gentleman who owns the house was an English teacher in a nearby high school who encouraged the study and writing of poetry. He also has, in his home, a printing press--my impression being that it is a vintage one. Anyone can tack a poem to the post. He occasionally gathers them from the post, and has published a book of poems from the post.
I may not have all of that exactly right, but question those fourth graders and they will tell you that they have had their poetry published--on the poetry post.
