poetry Friday

I missed poetry Friday last week!  But we’ll just make today poetry Monday instead.

Candy Corn by James Stevenson

These poems show the imagination that can exist in the every day.  Dumpsters, frogs, old buildings and other mundane objects become more in the words of James Stevenson.  These poems are short and simple, yet still lyrical, and are perfect for the younger reader, who will recognize his or her world on these pages.  Give Candy Corn a try, the experience might be as sweet as the candy.  And don’t forget, the poetry experience can be a bridge between listening and reading.  What a great reason to give poetry a chance.
