This April, our friends at Sweet Melody Ice Cream have crafted five unique flavors inspired by poems from students in our education program.
The hot orange sun
the summer breezes
the cold popsicle
by the cold pool

You are the light
in the morning that
wakes me up.
You are the shiny
dark night. If you
are the night I
am the day.
The clean blue
sweet you are
like a plum.
You have different
time for different
things like us
- Chloe, Emerson Elementary, 2019
If you are the rose
then I am your water.
If you are the pillow
then I am the bed.
If you are the sweet sugar
then I am the coffee.
If you are the socks
then I am the shoes.
If you are the folder
then I am the paper.
- Jonathan, Emerson Elementary, Fall 2019
My teacher is as sweet as an apple on a stick
and she’s here in class. Even though we are on the computer,
I still love my teacher. I am proud
because I passed third grade. Thank you

The Best Part
The city of oranges but also the city of sounds.
The new fancy cars going vroom on I-95 & honking their horns.
The popping of balloons at our annual youth fair.
The screams & laughter of the roller coaster rides.
The loud booms of fireworks & firearms on the 4th of July.
There's nowhere that you can go
where there's no sound in Miami.
The loud speakers blasting Polo G & Rod Wave,
the bell of everyone's phone notifications,
& the best sound in Miami,
is the sweet sounds of everyone's voices talking to one another.
Enjoying each other's
