“READ A POEM TO A CHILD”
Cheeky Besom Productions are challenging Scotland in An initiative of 100 Thousand Poets for Change: September 29, 2018 marks the eighth annual global event for 100 Thousand Poets for Change (100TPC), a non-profit, grassroots organization that brings communities together to address issues within the framework of peace and sustainability. An event that began primarily with poet organizers, 100TPC has grown into an interdisciplinary coalition with year-round events, which includes musicians, dancers, painters and photographers from around the world. For 2018, these events have taken on a unique focus, with the new 100TPC initiative, “Read A Poem To A Child.” We’re offering up the poem, ‘Childrens Smile’ from poet, Hua Jing:
Sunlight shine into out window.
Flowers withered away,
Gloom fills the day.
Let’s keep peace in the world,
So Happiness stays.
