You Belong @ Your Library: Write a Poem & Win!

All month everyone can write a variety of poetry--cinquains, haiku, acrostic poems, 24 hour poems, repurposed book poetry, and visual poems. It's all to celebrate National Library Week & National Poetry Month. All poets will pick a small prize for each poem and will be entered into a drawing for a library bag full of goodies. We will display them & post them on the blog if you want. Check out some of the poems so far:

Cinquain (has 5 lines--line one is the one word title; line 2 has 2 words and describes the title; line 3 is a 3 word pharse that describes an action relating to the title; line 4 is a 4 word phrase that describes a feeling related to the titile; line 5 is one word that refers back to your title.) Here's one:

Crawly bugs
Bugs crawling around
Nasty, disgusting, disturbing, yucky

And another:

Fun time
Flowers are blooming
The smell of flowers linger.

One more:

Every book
Turning unseen pages
A world of possibilities

A haiku:
Make a difference.
Have fun. Enjoy your lifetime.
Go enjoy a book.

An acrostic poem:

L earning new things

I ntelligent people making a difference

B ooks with interesting facts

R eading a lot of books

A ll access to new knowledge

R are and intelligent facts for learning.

Y ou have ways of getting inside a book.

Repurposed Book Poem: (yes, they circled words in a book & crossed out others...):

Eliminate difficulties
Beautiful considered
Figure identified
Toughest pleased
Arrived gift.
