Warming up!

Hello!  I am back after a long hiatus.  This weekend we are experiencing an unusually warm weekend in Western New York- I suspect we broke the record high of 60degrees.  Even though we are very much in the middle of winter, today makes me think of warmer days and springtime.  With Springtime comes the March Madness poetry tournament.  If you are a poet, consider applying to compete in this fun, challenging poetry competition.  You can apply at  I am getting warmed up for some heavy duty writing by revisiting some poems that I wrote last year.

One of my students tried her hand at "how-to" poetry and I'd like to share it with you now.  Welcome, Charity to Thinkinginrhyme!

Stack it!

Take some
And stack
Them up

Then simply
Cut them
Into fours
And simply
Put the syrup
On and then gobble it

Stack it!
