Judith Viorst's "Some Things Don't Make Any Sense at All" gave me a laugh this morning, so having met that criteria, it's my choice for Poetry Friday. You can riffle through the archives at the Academy of American Poets' web site and find several other poems that Viorst wrote for children. Viorst's name was linked at the article "Serious Play: Reading Poetry with Children," which offers a number of online reading suggestions and references. Very handy.
Now I must go see what poetic thoughts the other children's literature bloggers are thinking today; Hip Writer Mama has the roundup of all things verseful. To find out more about Poetry Friday (what is it? how did it start?), see this article at the Poetry Foundation. All are welcome.
Go forth and rhyme.
