If It's Friday, It Must be Poetry

Who's excited about National Poetry Month. Ooooh! Me! ME!!! I am really getting excited about this year's edition of 30 Poets/30 Days, kicking off April 1 right here. (Here's a link to last year's edition, for those unsure why I'm excited. All new poets and poetry this year... yay!).

There's going to be a lot else going on in the Kidlitosphere, too, and we'll explore more nearer April. In the meantime, though...

At Farm School, Becky has a fantastic post full of sources and ideas for National Poetry Month. Yow! You could spend all day here.

Over at Semicolon, Sherry is asking for list-submissions so she can put together a list of the Top 100 Classic Poems of all time (in this case meaning poems no longer under copyright so she can print them all on the blog!). It's not children's poetry specific, I know, but I do so love top 100 lists. Send her what you got!

And it's Poetry Friday, so why not head over to Becky's Book Reviews for the Roundup? Learn about The Spiney form of poetry. You know you want to....

I found your site last year during 30 Poets/30 Days. I look forward to this year's offerings.
