Happy Poetry Friday! (Wondering what Poetry Friday is? Click here.)
I’m so pleased to have a Things to Do poem on the last page of the Spring 2020 edition of Children & Libraries, the ALSC journal. Here’s the first half of it. You can read the full text here: https://journals.ala.org/index.php/cal/article/view/7312/10021
Boy, spring looks a lot different now than it did when I first wrote this poem. In fact, I was supposed to be at Hope College in Michigan talking with pre-service teachers right now:>( If you feel so inclined, add your own line to this poem in the comments. Your line could reflect traditional spring things, or it could be more up-to-the-minute, reflecting our current upheaval! Just start your line with a verb and tell spring what its job is. Hey, perhaps next Friday, I’ll compile them all into our community poem: Things to Do if You Are Spring (Pandemic Edition). I like that idea!
And for lots of wonderful poetry, don’t miss the Poetry Friday Roundup with poet-teacher Heidi Mordhorst!
