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

Thank you, Jama!


(And check out my group blog,
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!

Eli thinking deep, poetic thoughts…

This one appeared as a group of four as an example of limericks in Paul B. Janeczko‘s book,
WRITING FUNNY BONE POEMS (Scholastic, 2001):

by April Halprin Wayland

The Peanut Guy, he had a dream
Whenever he threw, fans would scream
With each bag he sold
A great throw he’d unfold
They watched him, ignoring their team.

This poem is based on the famous Peanut Man of Dodger Stadium, Roger Owens: https://youtu.be/U3Ask792az8?t=19s
