Poetry Friday: Book Spine Poems for National Poetry Month

poetry friday

April is National Poetry Month! My Poetry Friday offerings today are some book spine poems that I came up with this morning. Last year, we joined the kidlitosphere in celebrating National Poetry Month with a bunch of book spine poems. We are doing it again this year because it’s so much fun! Hope you enjoy the verses today. Poetry Friday is hosted today by the beautiful Irene Latham of Live Your Poem…. All book spine poems were taken and edited through my phone.

From the graveyard…


…to the zombie apocalpyse…


…and to outer space.


For the hopeless romantics…


…and the really hopeless.


Poetry is alive and kicking!

Did you have a favorite in our post today?

What about you? Do you have a poem to share?

Fats is the Assistant Manager for Circulation Services at the Wayne County Public Library in Wooster, Ohio. She considers herself a reader of all sorts, although she needs to work on her non-fiction reading. Fats likes a good mystery but is not too fond of thrillers. She takes book hoarding seriously and enjoys collecting bookmarks and tote bags. When she is not reading, Fats likes to shop pet apparel for her cat Penny (who absolutely loathes it).
