National Poetry Month Retruns

admin    April 1, 2012

Every April we celebrate National Poetry Month.  This year we’re trying some new things. This week visit our White Board to add your line to our poem.  Find a novel in verse. Write your own poem or your favorite poem to add to our Wall of Poetry.  And check back here as we add our favorite poems and poetry collections for you to enjoy and share.

One of my favorite kinds of found poetry is spine label poetry.  Here’s one I made using the titles of new books as the lines to my poem.

It’s called “Darkness.”

Every other day
a monster calls
in darkness.

A beautiful dark
extraordinary
embrace
switched
darker still.

Flyaway.
