Here are the photos I came up with to illustrate POETRY -
On the refrigerator in the break room at work, we have those little magnetic words that you can put together in different ways. I think it is called a magnetic POETRY kit. It has been up there so long that most people just ignore it. I rarely use the break room, but occasionally I wander in there and switch things up.
The Children's POETRY section is fairly substantial. It is dominated by a couple of poets that kids tend to really enjoy because of their humor. They can never get enough Jack Pretlutsky or Shel Silverstein. I love showing kids the POETRY section!
This is one of my favorite poems. It is by e.e. cummings, one of my favorite poets. I admit to getting a larger enjoyment out of more compact POETRY. I am, no doubt, too simple to fully enjoy more epic types of POETRY...at least on a regular basis. But give me something that makes me feel the message without a lot of analysis and a lot of my precious time and I am smitten.
I hope you have enjoyed my little POETRY display here. I enjoyed putting it together and love the opportunity to think about POETRY! I wonder what Jasen will choose for next week?
PS - If you ever get the urge to see my feeble attempts at POETRY, check out my Tumblr page, where I sometimes post something up. :)
