Of course you know it’s¬†Poetry Month
but do you know that
the wonderful and
mouth-wateringly
delicious Jama Rattigan
has herded poet bloggers
in the Kidlitosphere onto
her site  this month?

Thank you, Jama!

 

(And check out my group blog,
TeachingAuthors.com!
Every Friday when we talk
poetry, poetry, poetry!)

 

I write a poem each day; during Poetry Month 2015 I’m sharing *PPPs¬†
Welcome to Poetry Month 2015!

Eli and I will be feeding you one PPP per day for Poetry Month this year. ¬†What is a PPP, you ask? ¬†A *Previously Published Poem. ¬†I have so many poems in so many anthologies, books and magazines, Eli thought I should snap a leash on one each day this month and give it a walk around the block. ¬†So that’s what we’re doing this year. ¬†Enjoy!

(once you click on the title of the poem to the right,
the post shows up below¬†‚Üď )

Eli thinking deep, poetic thoughts…

LATKES


LATKES
by April Halprin Wayland

You wouldn’t think that

grated potatoes
…..minced onions
……….some eggs
……………some flour
………………..a pinch of salt and pepper

in a batter like pancakes
poured into boiling oil

could taste
…..so crispy brown
……………so yummy hot
………………..so Chanukah
…………………….going down.
