MAY: An Original Acrostic

Me? I’m the month when spring is in full swing...when the sun batters up
And hits a home run nearly every day…when
You find summer in the bullpen warming up.



Win a Poetry Book!
I’ve decided to extend National Poetry Month until May 5th at Wild Rose Reader. That means if you leave a comment at any of my poetry posts (except for the Poetry Friday Roundup) that I publish from Sunday, April 29ththrough Saturday, May 5th—I’ll enter your name in the drawing to win a copy of I Am the Book—with poems selected by Lee Bennett Hopkins and illustrations by Yayo.

I'll announce the winner of I Am the Book on Sunday, May 6th.


The Poetry Friday Roundup is at Wild Rose Reader today.

alas, if only your poem were true in this neck of the woods. rain, cold rain, freezing overnights so far, and only the possibility of cloudy sun this weekend before more comes.

but where april brings showers may brings hope. here's to the bullpen.
