#320 - A Valentine's Day (Crush!) Poem

Students - this is one short poem.  I knew that I wanted to write today's verse for Valentine's Day, one of my favorite holidays, but where to start?  As I daydreamed, the words crush and hush appeared in my mind.  And thanks to my pal the rhyming dictionary, more words joined this poem parade: gush, mush, blush.

For a book about animals all smitten with each other, Marilyn Singer's TWOSOMES celebrates this (or any) day of love!

The winners of the 2010 Cybils (Children's and Young Adult Literary Bloggers' Literary Awards) are announced today.  Congratulations to all of the winners!  Marilyn Singer, author of TWOSOMES (above) and many other books, won in the poetry category for her unbelievably clever MIRROR MIRROR: A BOOK OF REVERSIBLE VERSE.

Have fun dusting Valentine's Day with powdered sugar and tossing rose petals about!  Happy Valentine's Day!
