A Holiday Poem

December 14, 2020


Best Private School Near Me


Love, the greatest gift you can give or receive
Holding loved ones near to our hearts
As they hug our hopes and dreams
Wearing winter coats on starry nights
Our inner light shines from the seams

By Cydney Brown ’22,
Philadelphia Youth Poet Laureate


Wishing you and your family all the joy and peace of the season. The collage piece was created by Upper School Studio Art Instructor Amy Diaz Newman. The poem was written by Cydney Brown ’22, Philadelphia’s Youth Poet Laureate. Amy and Cydney collaborated to create these original pieces, which together convey our wishes for all members of the AFS community this holiday season: warmth, love and hope.
