On Saturday, I received my copy of The Poetry Anthology: Celebrations compiled by Janet Wong and Sylvia Vardell.
It will be awhile before my celebration day occurs: Super Bowl Sunday. I surprised my self by writing this poem as I am not a football fanatic like my co-worker, the PE teacher. She could have written this.
This page is from the student anthology. I am so excited to be a part of this community.
Designed for librarians and teachers and there’s a student version available. In April, during National Poetry Month,Susan Blackaby and I will be doing a reading and poetry activity at the Barnes and Noble near my school. (While not an independent book store, as there isn’t one for kids in Vancouver, WA, this B/N does support the schools well).
