Step into Poetry #9: St. John's

Step into Poetry #9: St. John's

A poem by Sri Chimney was painted by artist Joe Gallagher on the front steps of the former St. John the Baptist School—the latest addition to the Step into Poetry project taking place on Erie’s eastside. The poem reads: Try not to change the world. You will fail. Try to love the world. Lo, the world is changed. Changed forever. —Sri Chimney Step into Poetry is a project of The Writing Studio under the direction of Mary Lou Kownacki and was funded in part by Erie Arts & Culture and an anonymous donor.
