I’ve got a poem up as poem of the day?at PoetryMinute.org, the site started by U.S. Children’s Poet Laureate Kenn Nesbitt that features a children’s poem every day. Today, starting at 7 a.m. and for 24 hours, my poem “Blush” from Stampede! Poems to Celebrate the Wild Side of School, will be up.??Stampede! recently went out of print, so I’m happy to see part of it shared:>)
Addendum: As of 9:20, it’s not there yet, so I guess there’s been some kind of glitch, but go check out Julie Larios’ fabulous “Mermaid,” anyway!
“Blush” is about that embarrassing moment when someone has a crush on you and word gets around.? I’m not going to post the words here (because I’m hoping you’ll comment on it over at PoetryMinute.org), but here’s me reading the poem.
Tricia at The Miss Rumphius Effect?(check out her Monday Poetry Stretches) has the Poetry Friday Roundup–enjoy!
