Poetry Friday (One Day Early): Poems for Teens

When Billy Collins was poet laureate, he created a site called Poetry 180. Housed at the Library of Congress, Poetry 180 featured a poem a day for high school students, and it's still up and accessible.  Speaking for all of us slightly older than teens but still recalling our Freaks and Geeks/ Dazed and Confused days, I dedicate a cheer to Billy Collins and Poetry 180.

For today's Poetry Friday selection, I chose "The Bagel," by David Ignatow, which describes something unexpected. Enjoy.

Thanks to Elaine, of the Blue Rose Girls, who mentioned this site in an email.

We're heading to Montreal shortly and I haven't been able to find the host of this week's Poetry Friday. I hope you don't mind if I tag mine onto yours...

Today, we celebrate the irresistable rhyming book: The Piggy In The Puddle.

Thanks! and all the best of the holiday season to everyone in the kidlit-o-sphere!


Merry Christmas, Susan. May your new year be filled with books and poetry and joy. Thanks for blogging.

Happy holidays!

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year, Andrea, Sherry, and Jules! I look forward to the coming year in the kidlitosphere.
