World Emoji Day and Emoji Poems
July 17 is World Emoji Day! The reason why July 17 was chosen is really funny -- that's the date on the calendar emoji! Haha! :)
For World Emoji Day, I decided to translate a poem,, A Step Away From Them by Frank O'Hara into emojis. It's really fun! I remember doing this rebus puzzles when I was little where you use images and some letters to make phrases. It's like that, but with emojis!
Here are a few websites where they also translated poems into emojis. There are some classic poems, but in emojis! :)
Part of the emojis gets cut off in this side by side view, but you can see a larger version of the emoji poem below. Haha! :)
Give it a try! We are good at this!
