Good day to you all!
All the April showers certainly gave us May flowers, I hope you are enjoying them as well.
Tell me, how did "Poem in Your Pocket Day" go for you? Were you able to share a poem with others throughout the day? I hope it was fun for you!
I want to thank you for your overwhelming response about the teaching I did in March on the structure of a "Triolet". I loved the poems you shared with me! Keep up the good work! I will try to do this with you more often on other structured poems. Good job!
Recently I have been asked about Mothers Day Poems, and where you can find and read them since the day is almost here. Please find a list here of modern and some classics that you can read. So many beautiful ones.
The Academy of American Poets is such a valuable resource for writers, teachers, and those with the love of the written, and spoken word. They just learned yesterday, they've been honored by the National Book Foundation for their "Teach this Poem" project. The Academy of American Poets started this project in September of 2015. The project includes a timely poem, along with materials, and activities for teachers to use in order to bring poetry into the classroom in an easy manner. It's absolutely free, and a wonderful resource. Go for it teachers, use this link.
