Hi y'all! The month of April in the house of a family with a high school senior can be kind of wacky. It is in our case! Deciding where to go to college is basically a happy decision, but it feels stressful anyway. Rural or urban? Small or big? Free or not free? (No-brainer, right?) I have been quite distracted by the hubbub.
Some poem videos for your enjoyment:
The title of this post is from "Valentine for Ernest Mann" by Naomi Shihab Nye:
You can’t order a poem like you order a taco.
Walk up to the counter, say, “I’ll take two”
and expect it to be handed back to you
on a shiny plate.
Laura at Writing the World for Kids is hosting Poetry Friday today. Thanks, Laura!
