Subway – Billy Collins 1941
As you fly swiftly underground
with a song in your ears
or lost in the maze of a book,
remember the ones who descended here
into the mire of bedrock
to bore a hole through this granite,
to clear a passage for you
where there was only darkness and stone.
Remember as you come up into the light.
I created this art journal page based on two inspiration photos I took for the “Stroll Through The Hood Challenge” . You can see a free video on how I created the page and my thought process while doing it in the classroom accompanying the challenge if you haven’t yet. You can sign up here
I love the poem and I liked incorporating it into my art journal. All in all I am so grateful we have such an amazing public transportation system here- unless it is early in the morning and the train is full to the brim. Good think I work mostly from home ;)
Hope your days is awesome filled with easy transportation – no traffic jams- no packed trains :)
