Today's poem style was inspired by Nikki Grimes' challenge at Michelle's blog.
When I was thinking about writing a poem for Margaret Simon for the Summer Poem Swap, I could have focused on a word that related to her as a teacher, mother, sister, wife, daughter, poet. Margaret lives all these roles with verve. But the word that appealed to me for Margaret was "dance."
