This last month, our students entered in a contest to win a pair of tickets to Arizona’s famous Renaissance Festival. We saw many great written pieces dedicated to the Renaissance period, and ended up with two winners. Check out our winner’s submissions below.
“Rebirth” by Taylor Parsons
Fevered and impeccable
Full of gifts to give the globe
Finding art is to behold
All medieval is forsaken
All aboard the road less taken
All inclusive will survive
The stories etched by painters’ knives
A tale is told from whence we came
Self-awareness is to blame
“Renaissance” by Naiya Jones
Rebirth hung in the air like clouds
Exaltation of humanity in every sound
A Rebirth of classic times long past
Oh, the wonders of mankind
From Italy to everywhere
Beginning in lucky 13
Hundred and ending after 400 years
Like the Israelites in Egypt
Coming out for the better
And bridging the gap between
the Dark Ages to modern society
And bringing us to light
The beginning of knowledge
And the end of the Old World.
