Happy Poetry Friday! (Wondering what Poetry Friday is? Click here.)
We’re home! We spent two fabulous weeks in Scotland, and I’m so grateful for the trip! I will share some photos eventually. Meanwhile, I’m happy to be back to Poetry Friday. Here’s a poem I just shared with teachers in my September e-letter. (Are you subscribed? See the right sidebar if not!) It’s more of lyrical prose, I guess, and it’s based on specific experiences of teachers I know and schools and libraries I’ve visited this year. As the new school year gets underway, I’m just filled with gratitude and admiration for all of you teachers (of all kinds) out there and for how you’ve kept kids safe and learning and loved over the past two extremely difficult years.

And for lots of wonderful poetry, don’t miss the Poetry Friday Roundup with Kat Apel!
