Poetry Friday: Late Edition


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.

  1. What a thrill for your student, both to have her grandmother’s poem and a bit of proof that kids’ poetry matters, too!
    Hope your teeth are happy today! I’m not the best dental patient either. I always tell them to treat me like I’m a little kid. I may need a sticker at the end!

  2. An interesting treasure to be sure. I don’t think you’d find that today. A poem by an adult plus a poem by a child in the same book, unless I misread your post. Loved the thought that SOME POEMS can be slimy! (haha!)

    Hope you fel beter, Jone. I hate going to the dentist too.

  3. Jone, I love that you have children poets writing with you. If they are interested, I would love for them to write winter image poems and you choose which ones to send in to the gallery. I am looking for more #stuvoice.
