UCP Happenings...

Through the Eyes of a Poet

David, a participant of UCP of Suffolk’s Adult Day Habilitation Services Program, recently visited the birthplace of famous American poet Walt Whitman in Huntington Station with fellow participants. The trip was very special to David because he writes poetry. “I write poetry and I have been doing it since I was eight-years-old,” he said.

David, a UCP of Suffolk participant of five years, runs his own poetry group at UCP of Suffolk that meets once a week and is an active member of the organization’s Advocacy Group. He has published a children’s book with his sister called “Halloween Masquerade” and is currently working on a children’s poetry book on nature, which he loves writing about.

“Robert Frost is my favorite poet because he writes great poems about nature,” he said. As David sat in the art room at UCP of Suffolk’s main facility, he recited one of his own poems called “Stars.”

As I look up to the sky
I focus my mind
I have to stop and wonder
Which one God is behind
