The Poetry Friday Roundup Is at Wild Rose Reader Today!



I couldn't find out where the Poetry Friday Roundup was--so I thought I'd do it here!

POETRY FRIDAY: MORNING EDITION

At Wild Rose Reader, I have a review of The Tree That Time Built: A Celebration of Nature, Science, and Imagination, a wonderful new anthology that connects science and poetry. It was compiled by US Children's Poet Laureate Mary Ann Hoberman and her good friend Linda Winston.

Jama Rattigan is celebrating the joys of peanut butter today in honor of National Peanut Butter Lovers Month. Who else would know there was a month set aside for such a thing??? Get on over to Alphabet Soup and read The Great Peanut Butter Smackdown.

Laura Salas is in with an excerpt from J. Pat Lewis's new book The House and the 15 Words or Less poems inspired by a funny/sad photo.

Liz Garton Scanlon has literature on her mind. Check out her post Bright Books, which includes a poem by Henry Vaughan.

Jules of 7-Imp has One Impossibly Quick—But Fun—Q & A before Breakfast with Children’s Poet Bobbi Katz.

At A Year of Reading, Mary Lee has Sonnet by James Weldon Johnson for those experiencing difficult times. Her post is titled Beyond Surrounding Clouds.

Julie Larios admits to being “moon drunk” lately. She has some photos taken by a friend and an original poem, December 21. Why don’t you steal away to The Drift Record to see what she’s got for us today.

At the Miss Rumphius Effect, Tricia has a poem by Ted Kooser titled Gabardine that reminds her of her father. P. S. Don’t forget to wish Tricia a Happy Third Blog Birthday here.

My poem of the Week at Political Verses is HOT DOG!: A Turley Blawg Verse.

Sara Lewis Holmes has selected a poem by Rick Barot titled Reading Plato to share with us today at Read Write Believe. She says she chose the poem because—among other things—it describes the writing process.

LITERARY LUNCH POETRY BUNCH

Andy says The Write Sisters are checking in with a 1919 look at the 2009 flu pandemic. She’s offering The Flu by J. P. McEvoy for Poetry Friday.

Jone of Check It Out has a poem for us celebrating rain by Zaro Well titled From My Window.

At All About the Books, Janet Squires talks about Dav Pilkey's humorous Twas the Night Before Thanksgiving.

Charles Ghigna, aka Father Goose, has some poetic Inspiration for us this Poetry Friday.

Check out Poetry Friday—Haiku, A “New View” at Random Noodling.

Kurios Kitty takes a look at Where in the Wild?: Camouflaged Creatures Concealed…and Revealed.

POETRY FOR EARLY EVENING

Janet has Valerie Worth’s poem Library for us today at Across the Page.

Don’t forget to travel over to the Bonny Glen for Melissa Wiley’s post— Then Again, Perhaps She'd Be Offended by That "Corwin, Tim'rous" Business.

Author Mitali Perkins is sharing a short video of four poems by Naomi Shihab Nye read by the poet.

Teacher and children’s poet Heidi Mordhorst joins us today with Robert Frost’s In Hardwood Groves at her blog My Juicy Little Universe.

Kelly Fineman says she’s FINALLY in with a review of The Monsterologist by Bobbi Katz and Adam McCauley.

FRIDAY NIGHT POEMS

At Book Crumbs, Priya has an original poem for us titled Tuesday Morning.

Maya Ganesan and Miss Erin have a collaborative poem to share with us called Carving.

Lisa said that she’s having a great weekend in New York City at a poetry workshop at Poets House, a beautiful library on the Hudson River filled with poetry! She’s posted a sweet poem she found there, Human Heart by Gregory Orr.

Author Tabatha A. Yeatts has three poems for us—including Dove Rengger-Thorpe’s The Hatching.

At Blue Rose Girls, I have Toucan Talk: An Original Animal Mask Poem.

Thank you for doing the roundup today, Elaine. We're like lost sheep wandering around looking for a host.

Thank you for stepping up, Elaine!

I think you already found my post, but here's the link to the poem I'm featuring by Rick Barot. He had me at his opening line "I think about the mornings it saved me/ to look at the hearts penknifed on the windows.."

Julie Larios said...

Mary Lee said...

Thanks for doing the roundup, Elaine. I would have done it if I had access to reliable internet at the hospital today -- mom had surgery yesterday and I'm have enough loose bits of time...but no internet in her room! She's doing very well (thanks for asking!!). We'll be here in Denver one more night, then drive the 2.5 hours home tomorrow.

Elaine Magliaro said...

Mary Lee--

I didn't know about your mother. I hope she has a speedy recovery. I will keep her in my thoughts.

I'm retired. I usually have plenty of free time--so doing the Poetry Friday Roundup is rarely a hassle for me.

Janet Squires said...

Thanks, Elaine.
At All About the Books, a favorite story told in rhyme for this season is Dav Pilkey's humorous "Twas the Night Before Thanksgiving." In this Clement Moore inspired story, turkeys and a bus-load of school children conspire to create a unique feast.

FATHER GOOSE said...

Thanks, Elaine!

Here's a bit of "Inspiration" from

FATHER GOOSE blog

KURIOUS KITTY said...

Kurious Kitty looks at Where in the Wild?: Camouflaged Creatures Concealed...Revealed.

Random Noodling looks at several haiku sites.

Thanks for hosting! I tried to contact Kelly with a suggestion that would eliminate the weekly scramble to find the host blog! I hope she gets my email!
