Poetry Friday: Late Edition

IMG_1077

Thank you, Carol for hosting Poetry Friday.

Note to Self:  Get your post completed BEFORE the dentist.  Yes, I had an 8 AM appointment yesterday and my best thinking was that I had ALL day to get the post up.  Forgetting of course, that I would be wiped out following the dentist.  (I;m not a good patient when it comes to the dentist)

So I am thrilled that my Poetry Rocks has grown to 25+ students this year.  I have 1st-5th graders.   And this was the coolest; a second grader brought me a book that contained her great-grand mother’s poem in it.  Plus this great poem about poetry written by an 11 year old.  The poetry book was published in the 1960’s.

Happy Saturday.

Happy Poetry.
