Poems from around the world
Haiku the world’s shortest poem
Meryl Zeidenberg and I were motivated by Taylor Mali’s visit to The American School of Sao Paulo to add a visual and audio layer to students’ poetry writing, as well as link them globally to other students’ poems.
We’re excited to launch the Visualize Poetry Around The World project, which will bring global awareness to teachers and students while inspiring them to look beyond their own backyard and perspective.
[ There is no set start or finish date for this project. Each teacher contributes his or her students’ video poems to the wiki platform on their own time. All we ask is that you share, communicate, and provide quality input on other students’ contributions as part of your commitment.
I was born and raised in Argentina. The fragrance of a Bife de Chorizo at a friend’s asado and the crowds on Florida and Lavalle. As I step off the colectivo on a warm Spring day in early December, I am surrounded by the fragrance of jasmine.
I am a Brazilian citizen. From a language that is almost understandable but sounds strange, as though you’re listening through a hole in the ground or wearing glasses with the wrong prescription weight. I’m from a place where I feel almost close but am too far away due to the fog.

This diverse poetry collection takes readers on a fictional journey from Greenland to the United Kingdom, passing through Nicaragua, Kenya, Hungary, and a number of other nations. Some poems are lighthearted, while others are grim, and together they conjure up an exotic but familiar world. A tree-lizard from Australia sings for rain, a Chilean mother rocks her baby to sleep, and a boy monk sleeps.

This poem addresses the grand question of “How can I make a difference in the world?” On first reading, it shows the value of one’s decision, concluding, “I took the path less traveled by, / And that has made all the difference.”
A closer examination shows that our traveling narrator’s lonely decision wasn’t all that important, as both roads were essentially the same (“Had alert them really about the same”), and it was only in the recalling and retelling that it made a difference. We’re left to wonder if the writer had taken “The Road Not Taken” instead, if it would have made a difference. In certain ways, “The Road Not Taken” rips apart the conventional view of individualism, which is based on the value of preference, such as in the case of democracy in general (choosing a candidate) and various constitutional freedoms: choice of religion, choice of words (freedom of speech), choice of party (freedom of assembly), and choice of information source (freedom of press). For example, we might imagine a young man deciding between becoming a carpenter or a banker later finding great meaning in his decision to become a banker, but his original decision was nothing more than a passing fancy. We can see the universality of human beings in this: the roads leading to carpenter and banker are essentially the same, and the carpenter and banker at the end of them—while appearing to be individuals who made significant decisions—really are only part of the human race’s community.
