These poems were written by students in South Africa, just outside of Port Elizabeth in the Eastern Cape. The class was taught by Miriam Dreyer and all work was done in the span of two weeks.

The poems are joyous, sad, thoughtful, and give great insight into the lives of the incredible children who wrote them.

No liberties were taken with the work. They were typed just as written by the students.
