Hi Everyone! I hope you are all enjoying your April vacation. Did you know that today is National Poem in Your Pocket Day? It is a great way to share a piece of poetry with your friends and family. If you don’t have a favorite poem, maybe you can borrow mine. This year, I chose “The Road” by Marilyn Singer. It is from her book called “Mirror, Mirror”. This is a book full of poems written in reverso. That means they can be read from top to bottom and bottom to top and tell a different story each way. Here’s the poem.
“It may be such
A fairy tale secret,
The road leads
you need to go.”
Did you read it both ways? Which direction did you like best? I like reading this poem from the bottom to the top. Have a great Poem in Your Pocket Day, and don’t forget to share it with a friend!
