I am happy to tell you that Sylvia Vardell and Janet Wong's newest poetry anthology--GREAT MORNING!: Poems for School Leaders to Read Aloud--has just been published. I am also thrilled that one of my poems is included in this book!!!
SCHOOL BAKE SALE
by Elaine Magliaro
We're having a bake sale tomorrow at three.
We're raising money for our school's library.
We'll have goodies to sell--goodies galore--
Better than baked goods you buy in a store:
Cranberry muffins and cinnamon rolls,
Pretzels, turnovers, scones, donut holes,
Sweet Danish pastries slathered with jam,
Calzones stuffed with cheddar and ham,
Frosted brownies--fudgy and gooey--
Tart lemon squares--tangy and chewy--
Flaky fruit pies bursting with berries,
Peaches, apples, rhubarb, and cherries,
Coconut cream cakes, cookies, and more!
We'll have goodies to sell--goodies galore.
Come to our bake sale tomorrow at three!
Help us raise money for our school's library.
Check out Sylvia Vardell's post about GREAT MORNING! at her blog Poetry for Children.
