Poem on Arizona 

Statehood Day in Arizona
by Alberto Álvaro Ríos

School is that place where dreams
Are the curriculum.

When I was at Coronado Elementary School

In Nogales, in the 1950s

We stood in front of the school every morning

To say the Pledge of Allegiance.

But just before spring, one day stood out,

And always arrived in a sparkling of red dust:

Valentine’s Day. What you did was very clear

In an elementary school—we pasted together big

Paper pocket hearts, to hang on the front of our desks

In desperate hopes of hearing from a secret admirer,

A note mixed in with the small cards and candy hearts.

But alas, no note. The day itself, however, brought

Its own news, and cheered us up: It was Arizona’s

Birthday, and so we did what anyone would do.

After the Pledge of Allegiance, we sang

Happy birthday Arizona, as loud as we could.

It wasn’t quite the same thing as Valentine’s Day,

But it gave us something to count on,

Enough to raise our voices high, enough

To make on this day this world a better place.
