This year has been one for the books. It's time to treat yourself to some hot cocoa, grab a blanket, and cozy in by the fire for the 2021 Edition of Polco's Winter Survey Poetry!
In These Times Haiku -By Angelica Wedell
In these times we live Only one thing is certain Your voice still matters
Engagement is key To community success In every regard
Data’s not an egg If you sit on it and wait It will never hatch
The Winter Fun Bowl -By Erin Caldwell
There was a director of parks Who wanted a community “spark” To fight the doldrums And increase the fun Of residents stuck in the dark
He wanted a community read On just what would meet the need To chase away blues And bring up the mood So he sent out a public plea:
“Please come do our wintertime poll That’s been posted online on Polco” Residents responded A new game was founded And thus was born the Winter Fun Bowl
Residents flocked to the winter time sports That were played on the parks and the courts Participants cheered As the new games premiered And high ratings were given in the follow-up reports
-By Riley Bellin
For years in the past, life has been rather dreary, Some may even say, things felt a little bit eerie. And people were beginning to feel quite a bit weary, But this holiday season, things got incredibly cheery!
The cities, towns, and countries around All join together, to make quite a sound! It’s their voices! Their voices! They’ve been heard abound! When heard by their leaders, not-a-one made a frown.
They gathered their resources and information too, Working for change, saying, “Gather the crew!” “Get them to take Polco’s Survey, it’s new!” When the survey was over, their government grew.
Our voices work better together, not apart. We should know that not from the end, but the start. If we all work in tandem, and all do our part, You should know using Polco’s platform is really, quite very smart.
