Make some art with this all-aged activity that celebrates our planet’s flying friends.

In this activity, you can read some of Pablo Neruda’s odes to ordinary things, and create your own poem celebrating an everyday object.

The great Chilean poet, Pablo Neruda, was a master of the ode. He believed in the poetry of ordinary things: artichokes, socks, scissors, onions. These simple things make up the choreography of our everyday lives. 

CAP Staff tries their hand at odes to common things.
