My child, don’t forget:
Sing a psalm for the new and
Invent a secret life.
Children at crossroads
connect to anything.
You will decode Messages.
It could be a poem of ants and acids;
an academy of the most prosperous
lesson plans on equality .
Seek out how many days
until we know this truth:
Ugly duckling ="chicken boy" +"test answers".
Always remember what I tell you.
Awakening depends upon
related poetry about place;
not types of Harry Potter haiku.
This book discussion wonders
over text to self connection;
It’s chasing myths for kids by kids; a list of
free underground railroad quilt patterns.
This week Miss Rumphius is giving us Found Poetry as our poetry stretch. This form collects words or phrases from the environment and shapes them into a poem by rearranging, adding and manipulating the language (read the Wikipedia entry.) I am intrigued with this practice. To write the above poem I looked at my site meter and collected search terms that brought readers to this blog over the past few days. It was a fascinating and illuminating exercise. Read more found poems by following the links at Miss Rumphius.
