An Ode To the World
The world is a strange place and is only getting stranger.
This is An Ode to the World, a collection of stories, poems, and personal narratives by the 7th graders at M.S. 839.
Whether dreaming about alliances with Australian mice or writing poems in praise of tuna, these writers bring a thoughtful, creative, and sometimes oddball perspective to all they see.
These are stories of friendship, community, and learning how to be ourselves in this crazy world. We hope you enjoy!
