Every Friday blogs all around the Kidlitosphere post something poetry related; original work, poetry book reviews, a favorite poem, a bit of poetic news, a story or classroom experience... it's all good. Today it's my turn to host the round up with links to all that poetic juiciness.
Many of the bloggers that participate in the kidlitosphere (focusing on books for children and young adults) will be in Minniapolis this weekend at KidLitCon. I am sad I couldn't join them, but glad I was able to take part in the party by hosting the Friday Poetry. While they are traveling toward each other and gathering for KidLitCon drinks night IRL, we will be lifting our virtual drinks in spirit.
I'll start with a photo of the woods near school and a haiku that rises from the quiet of my last woodland walk.
along the woodland path;
going green to gold
sap singing praises to light
an offering of leaves
If you have some poetry to share please leave your blog name (with an indication of what you're posting) and your URL in Mr. Linky below. I'll copy and paste the list into this post at the end of the day. Then come back later to browse around and enjoy the feast all weekend!
