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…

Ancient dog
circled in the grass
round and round
to tamp it down

I am dog
circling, too
round and round
as all dogs do
round my homework,
round my desk
finally, working
then I rest.
