Poetry Friday: An Ode to Kool-aid

  Jan at Bookseedstudio is hosting 
this week's roundup of poetic goodness 
with relaxing thoughts about floating
with her poem, "Mom and me in the sea."

I've been absent since the middle of May, but I signed up to host in August for my first time ever. So I need to start showing up. Today I'm sharing this recent discovery, "An Ode to Kool-Aid" by Marcus Jackson, a sweet summertime tradition for those of us who grew up in the 60s!


  1. Hi Ramona, Welcome back! I love this--I laughed out loud at the last line:>)

  2. Oh, this ode is so true...brought back some incredible memories.

  3. Yipes, that ending!
    My mom would make Kool-Aid popsicles that I remember SO fondly.

  4. Dear Ramona, I read this poem this week too. :) I wasn't a Kool-Aid kid, but I do remember the ads. xo
