"These Hands" by Renée M. LaTulippe

Here is a "poem movie" for Renée M. LaTulippe's poem, "These Hands," created by graduate student Ann Siejka. Watch it below.

This poem is featured in The Poetry Friday Anthology for Middle School in the seventh grade section, week 15, for the theme, "Stuff We Love."


  1. Beautifully presented, Ann. Renee's lovely poem could be interpreted so many ways & your idea of ship building is terrific!

  2. How did I miss this?! I love it! My father worked with his hands all his life, and my older brother does some gorgeous carpentry as a hobby, so I loved seeing these images with my poem. Thank you so much, Ann, for doing such a lovely job. I'm all warm and fuzzy. :)

    Sylvia, thank you for doing this wonderful project with your students!

  3. Thanks so much for the lovely response to my video. My grandfather built a 30 foot cabin cruiser and this poem reminded me of him. Thank you for the beautiful memory.
