This is the full performance of Muslim Girls Making Change at Johnson State College on Sept. 12, 2017. A great crowd -- people were sitting on the floor and standing in the back and sides of the venue. Great energy and active listening. And a powerful performance.

Three poems by Eden Anne Bauer, Grade 7, Crossroads Academy, Lyme, NH
Somewhere, far out there in the woods at night, Encircled by trees, with stars in the sky, Little fairies come to dance by moonlight As e’er-changing constellations pass by— The ladies are dressed in beautiful gowns Of spiders’ silk, petals, iridescent Starlight satin, as light and soft as down; And slippers of stardust; magnificent— The young men all wear stiff suits, and fine ties; The suits are cut from vivid, Autumn leaves; The ties from knitted clouds. All is made by Hand, all the way from the shoes to the sleeves— All the trees are laced with small, flawless pearls: Crickets hold their poise; the men bow; girls twirl.
