"Body Art" by Marilyn Singer

Here is the last of our student-created "poem movies." This one features Marilyn Singer's poem, "Body Art," and is created by graduate student Phyllis Yarbro. Click here to watch it.

This poem is featured in The Poetry Friday Anthology for Middle School in the eighth grade section, week 35, for the theme, "Summer Vacation."

We hope you've enjoyed our homemade masterpieces. We've had fun making them and exploring ways to use technology to promote poetry!

Next up: Backstories for some of the poems in The Poetry Friday Anthology for Middle School from the poets themselves.
