The Poetry Friday Roundup Is Here!!!



I'm doing the Poetry Friday Roundup this week. Please leave the URL of your poetry post in the comments. I'll be updating and adding links throughout the day.

NOTE: Sorry I'm later than usual posting the poetry links this morning. We had a family medical emergency this week. I've also had a stubborn sinus infection. My energy level is bit low at the moment.



***************

Just after Midnight Poetry Postings

At Wild Rose Reader today: The Giant's Magic Harp Sings: A Fairy Tale Poem.

At Blue Rose Girls, I have a poem by June Harvey titled I Cannot Speak of War.


Morning Poetry Postings and Some Villanelles

Tricia of The Miss Rumphius Effect has a villanelle she wrote as part of the Poetry Seven's efforts.

Liz Garton Scanlon shares her villanelle, First Date on the Railroad Trestle, at Liz in Ink.

Laura Purdie Salas joins in with Fierce, her villanelle for the Poetry Seven group.

Sara Lewis Holmes shares an original villanelle today as part of the Poetry Seven: Marrow, Friends, Each to Each.

Kelly Fineman shares her villanelle A Family Thanksgiving.

Mary Lee of a Year of Reading participates in Poetry Friday with three excerpts from Diane Ackerman poems. She says: “I’m trying to make sense of some recent tragedies that have touched not me directly, but lots of the people in my world. How do they/we keep going?” Check out her post: Poetry Friday—I Praise My Destroyer.

Diane Mayr took on a poetry challenge to write englynion at Random Noodling. Diane also shares Flirtation, a poem by Rita Dove, at Kurious Kitty’s Kurio Kabinet. And at Write Sisters, she takes a look at Mary Quattlebaum’s Winter Friends, a collection of poetry for children.

Andromeda Jazmon is in with a Thanksgiving Villanelle she wrote as part of the Poetry Princess project.

Jama is celebrating Alice and Arlo today, with a little about her restaurant, 2 recipes, and Arlo's poem, "Mooses Come Walking” at Jama Rattigan’s Alphabet Soup.

Charlotte’s talks up today with three fun picture books in verse at Charlotte’s Library.

Julie Larios wrote: “I'm feeling a bit blue about Obama's speech on Tuesday & decided to post the lyrics to a song from WWI called The Green Fields of France, and a link to a You Tube video in which John McDermott sings it. Links to two other songs, too - Pie Jesu from "Requiem", sung by Sarah Brightman, and Bring 'em Home sung by Bruce Springsteen.” Check out Julie’s post—Poetry Friday: Heartache. (Julie I posted I Cannot Speak of War, a poem I found at Poets Against War at Blue Rose Girls today because I was also feeling a bit blue too.)

Jules of 7-Imp is already gearing up poetically for the holiday season with some Christmas lyrics and art from Elisa Kleven at Poetry Late-Thursday-Night: On High.

Jeannine Atkins wrote about Sweethearts of Rhythm written by Marilyn Nelson and illustrated by Jerry Pinkney. FYI: The poems are written from the points of view of instruments.

Heidi Mordhorst, a children’s poet I had the great pleasure of meeting at NCTE in Philadelphia, joins in with a foolish limerick and an original poem suitable for the long dark nights that lead up to the Winter Solstice: We Light a Candle.

Karen Edmisten gives us Reluctance, a poem by Robert Frost, this Poetry Friday.

Irene Latham has a Ted Kooser poem called The Skater at Live. Love. Explore!.

Charles Ghigna, aka Father Goose, Shares an original poem with us today: Winter in the Park.

G. R. LeBlanc is in with a quick review and a haiku from the picture book Grass Sandals, The Travels of Basho, over at Reflective Ink.

This week's poem on The Stenhouse Blog is Aliteracy Poem by Steven Layne.



A Light Poetic Lunch Bunch & Another Villanelle

Jet has a poem by Vachel Lindsay for us to munch on midday at The Incredible Thinking Woman.

Sylvia Vardell is in this week with a focus on 2009's top trend in poetry for children: TIME at Poetry for Children.

Tricia was kind enough to provide me with the link to Thanksgiving Away, the villanelle written by Tanita Davis—who’s traveling.


When Evening Falls—Poetry Calls

Sherry’s sharing a Christmas poem today that was written by George Herbert at Semicolon.

Miss Erin contributes an original poem this Poetry Friday.
