|It’s the last day of National Poetry Month, and I’ve had a great time browsing through some of my favorite poetry books to share excerpts with you throughout the month. Since I’ve been on the road a lot, I haven’t really done any blog reading lately, so for me, May will be my month of discovering new poems and poets on other people’s blogs. Meanwhile, I’m going to close the month with one of my own poems. (Ack–Is that awful?) I want to share one of my favorites from Stampede (Clarion, 2009, illustrated by Steven Salerno).
I’m one quiet fox.
I tuck deep inside
