Hidden Poetry on Boston’s Sidewalks Is Revealed Only When It Rains

01Hidden Poetry on Boston's Sidewalks Is Revealed Only When It Rains

“In honor of National Poetry Month, Mass Poetry, in partnership with The City of Boston, is proud to present Raining Poetry.

Using a biodegradable water-repellent spray and stencils made by local artists, the city’s Mural Crew is setting out to place poems throughout the streets of Boston. The spray vanishes once dry, so the poems are invisible – until it rains. Once wet, the area around the poems will darken, and Bostonians will be treated to short poems as they walk around the city.

Boston’s Poet Laureate, Danielle Georges, has selected four poems for the initial art installation, including three by Massachusetts poets.

With Raining Poetry, we are able to bring more poetry into the everyday lives of the unsuspecting.”
