Irene Latham at Live Your Poem
has this week's round-up of poetic goodness.
She always has a fun project for Poetry Month .
Be sure to check out the Q&A in today's
post about her poetic process for this year's
ARTSPEAK, Harlem Renaissance focus.
I'm trying a golden shovel poem with a line from Billy Collin's poem, "Today" (which I shared yesterday.) Today's poem celebrates the fun I had at Poem in Your Pocket Day at the middle school where I used to teach sixth grade.
you find yourself retired and ever
have a need to hang out with students, there
is a way to transport you to days that were,
a stop by your former school for a
chance to be with the young, a perfect spring
delight provided by poem in your pocket day
when you can share poetry, a day so
filled with joy that it's close to perfect!
