remember golden moments when a visiting poet would come and the students would sit up and open their ears.
Jayne Jaudon Ferrer has a passion for sharing poetry with students and has visited middle schools and high schools all over America, reading to them, sharing her poems, listening to their poems.
This poem, "And So You Go" is one poem she has often shared with students. It's the poem that a number of mothers have written to her about, telling the author that they read this poem to their sons at their graduation celebration.

"It's so much fun to help young people discover that poetry is a marvelous way to communicate -- even with their parents," said Jayne Jaudon Ferrer recently.
