Hi PFers! Happy Poetry Friday! (Wondering what Poetry Friday is? Click here.)
I’m mostly offline for May, and I’m missing you all. I wanted to just say that I’ve read some wonderful poetry books lately–you’ve probably seen these talked about in more depth on other blogs, but if you haven’t seen the books themselves, I highly urge you to skedaddle to your indie bookshop, Amazon, or your library to find these wonderful offerings!
ALL of these books are fabulous! I have At the Pond at my elbow right now as I look out at our little retention pond, so I’ll share this spread. Honestly, even if I didn’t love David Elliott’s poetry so dang much, I’d have to have this one just for the art by Amy Schimler-Safford. You can see both the words and art are spectacular.
And for lots more wonderful poetry, don’t miss the Poetry Friday Roundup with Carmela over at Teaching Authors! They’re always sharing interesting, useful ideas at that glog.
