Life on the Deckle Edge

POETRY MONTH Mini Movies Continue with "We See with These" - a Found Poem

 

Greetings, Poetry Lovers!  I'm enjoying making these "I Pause for Poems" mini poem movies for you!

 

Today it's a FOUND poem -  "We See with These," (©2012 by Robyn Hood Black) from THE ARROW FINDS ITS MARK - A BOOK OF FOUND POEMS (Roaring Brook Press, 2012), edited by Georgia Heard and illustrated by Antoine Guilloppé.

Poetry Friday - My NATIONAL POETRY MONTH mini videos continue... :0)

 

Greetings, Poetry Lovers!  Happy Poetry Friday, and Happy National Poetry Month.

 

Each weekday in April, I'm sharing a new short video featuring me reading one of my published poems.  On Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays, these are poems for children.  On Tuesdays and Thursdays, these are haiku suitable for children.

 

(So, three down... a bunch to go!)

 

Today's reading is from THE POETRY FRIDAY ANTHOLOGY (K-5 edition) from POMELO BOOKS by Sylvia Vardell and Janet Wong. Click here to hear it, and/or click here for my YouTube channel. (Note, I don't really know what I'm doing, but I'm learning... Ha!)

 

 

Trouble on the Trail

 

The woods are great and everything,

but now I feel an itch. 

 

My arms are turning kind of red;

my body wants to twitch.

 

You think that's poison ivy there?

Now that would be some joke. 

 

You don't?  Oh good.  But what was that?

You think it's poison oak?

Thanks to my family for helping with this project (Morgan mentioned looking for online content for her third-graders; Seth whipped up some original guitar magic and texted it to me; and hubby Jeff followed me around this past weekend with my new-ish iPhone to make some recordings!). Special thanks to all the teachers, media specialists, and school staff, who, like Morgan, are missing their students so and doing their best to educate from afar. 

 

Speaking of amazing teachers, the always-adventurous Heidi has our Roundup today at My Juicy Little Universe.  And be sure to check out all the special Poetry Month projects around the Kidlitosphere at Jama's yearly Alphabet Soup Roundup.  Thank you, you Wonderful Women! AND, follow the Progressive Poem, this year organized by another amazing teacher, Margaret!

 

Wishing you and yours peace and safety and health in these surreal days.  Read, and write, lots and lots of poems!

Poetry Month - I Pause for Haiku - "between"

 

Greetings, Poetry Lovers!  

 

My National Poetry Month project continues with "I Pause for Poems" and "I Pause for Haiku" mini original poem movies.  Today I'm reading a haiku which originally appeared in bottle rockets, #41, August 2019.  The photo with the text, and the sound effects accompanying it, came from our back yard.  You'll see. ;0) 

 

Click here for the link, and here for my YouTube channel. Each Monday, Wednesday, and Friday in April, I'll add a poem for kids.  Each Tuesday and Thursday this month, I'll add a haiku.

 

For all kinds of National Poetry Month project magic, visit the lovely Jama who has rounded up poetic wonders around the Kidlitosphere at Jama's Alphabet Soup.
