    Claudia Morales and Marisela Padilla read examples of student poems inspired by Jean-François Millet’s “Man with a Hoe.” Here’s an example written by one of Claudia Morales’s students:

    I am a hardworking farmer.
    I am not delighted by the harsh rays of the sun.
    I am tan
    Like the soil
    I am harvesting.
    But I’m not rewarded by my work.
    I am sweating
    But I’m not giving up.

    By Marisela Jimenez
