Happy Poetry Friday! (Wondering what Poetry Friday is? Click here.)
I have read so many wonderful books lately–many of which I heard about at NCTE. One of my favorites is Wet Cement, a fantastic book of concrete poems by Bob Raczka.
This is not a new book (Roaring Brook, 2016), and I have no idea how I missed it last year–though last year was freaking crazy, so there’s that. Anyway. This is so clever! Not only are the poems concrete poems, but every title is also concrete. Check out this one, one of my favorites:
And my very favorite is the “Poetry” poem at the very end. I’ve seen this one before and shared it with some young poets. It is so perfect! But I’m not going to share it here. Instead, I urge you to find this book and read it yourself:>)
And for lots of fabulous, eclectic, perhaps seasonal poetry, don’t miss the Poetry Friday Roundup with Diane at Random Noodling!
