Almost There.... - a writing poem/a poem poem

Almost There....
Greg Pincus

I've been thinking about a new poem.
I can see the way it should begin.
Yet the writing is pending
'Til I know the ending -
I don't want to leave it unfin...!

Happy Summer, y'all (well... y'all in the Northern Hemisphere!). This week's Poetry Friday Roundup is over at The Poem Farm where Amy Ludwig VanDerwater keeps you stocked in poetry all year round.

Congratulations, Kenn Nesbitt!

I'm excited to see that Kenn Nesbitt has been named the Poetry Foundation's next Children's Poet Laureate!

It's a two year term, so Kenn will be taking over for J. Patrick Lewis this year and be laureating until 2015. I'm looking forward to tons of laughter from Kenn, as always, and I know he'll be inspiring kids to love all kinds of poetry for years to come.

Congratulations, Kenn!
