|G, Lakshmi, and Hi. "Poetry Prize Winner Found Beauty in Urdu Poetic Tradition."NBCNews.com. NBCUniversal News Group, 19 July 2017. Web. 19 July 2017. |
I read the article. Some of my students are Urdu speakers and I am always trying to get to know them and find ways of welcoming them to reading in my middle school library.
I hope to keep track of this poet as she makes her way in the world. I feel like I've already made a new friend.
Here's one of her poems...there's more out there.
Thanks to Katie at The Logonauts for hosting this week's Poetry Friday Round-Up.
