More Poetry

A couple of class announcements before we move on to today's post. First, our first contest is over and the winner is (cue drumroll) Katie D! She won some great prizes-- The Opposite of Invisible by Liz Gallagher, The Gollywhopper Games by Jody Feldman and I heart you, You haunt me by Lisa Schroeder. Enjoy your prizes, Katie D!

Next up, class member Teri Brown, got her very first review for her young adult book, Read My Lips. You can check it out here. She also got a mention at yPulse.

To continue poetry week, we have a poetic offering from Barrie Summy's 12 year old son, affectionately referred to as Child #3.

Poetry Is

Poetry is the reminder to thank someone after a bad day,
The blue of a dried out ocean,
Seeing with no eyes beads on a bracelet.

Poetry is “big” written small,
Or “small” written big,
A book with no words.

Poetry is the emotion of a page,
Style in word form,
All the emotions packed onto one page.

We couldn’t have said it any better child #3!
