[Poetry Friday] Book Spine Poems – Changing Seasons

poetry friday

I am glad to be joining Poetry Friday this week. As April is about to end, I make a last hurrah for National Poetry Month as I share a few book spine poems as inspired by Travis Jonker from 100 Scope Notes. Poetry Friday is hosted this week by the beautiful Laura Salas of Writing the World for Kids.

  4. Book spine poems fascinate me! I’m blown away by the way people put titles together and actually come up with something that makes sense! I love “Seasons,” especially the last two lines.

  5. I love spine poems – I keep coming back to the dream one and wanting to try the lines in different order even. Don’t know why it’s so intriguing to me, but I guess it’s really just that they are so much fun to mess around with.

  6. Always interesting to see what books people choose to use in these, Myra. I like that one starting with Ben’s Dream.

  7. So many books about dreams! I like the word “gossamer” a lot. How was the book?

    I wonder how it changes your last spine poem to switch the order of those two books? Same or no?

  8. I find the last one says much more in two lines than many longer poems!

  9. These are fabulous–my favorite is the first one. Somehow that gossamer in there and then the poison just add so many twists and turns.
