Poetry from the Wheelock Poet-Tree

In April the library started a Poet-Tree to celebrate National Poetry Month. The Wheelock community made blackout poems on leaves cut from old discarded books, and then added those leaves to the Poet-Tree. The tree proved so popular, that we ended up leaving it up through the end of the semester. Just look at how much the tree grew over time!
