Keep 🌹 Portland 🤠 Weird

Listen to Melanie’s pronunciation during the reading of her poem.
Listen to Jason, a male voice, so you can hear a variety of pronunciation to train your ear.

May we all Keep Portland Weird by serving with acts of kindness.

Passing out bags on a parade route,

Opening our homes to strangers,

Gifting with generosity.

May we all Keep Portland Weird with sharing our talents.

Dancing with heart to a Disney tune,

Magic tricks to delight and invoke laughter,

Thoughtful speeches to bring a contented sigh.

May we all Keep Portland Weird with learning from each other’s cultures.

A colorful display of healthy food to nourish,

Sipping drinks made from the homeland,

Swapping stories to understand each other better.

May we all Keep Portland Weird with making memories together.

Breathing the same pine scented air,

Walking in the same neighborhoods,

Taking in the same sights and sounds.

May we all Keep Portland Weird by building relationships to last a lifetime.
