If I Were A....

Wow!  A game took place between the Poem Farm and Radio, Rhythm & Rhyme.  If you visited on Monday, you saw my poem, If I were my dog for just one day.

Well, guess what?

Matt Forrest, over at Radio, Rhythm & Rhyme, has written a great answer poem, "If I Were a Cat."

It was such a wonderful surprise to find this poem from him, an unexpected game of poem-to-poem.  And then, on Friday, I visited Mrs. Ferrara's third grade students at Klem North Elementary School in Webster, NY.  They, too, had written "If I were a cat" poems.  (Maybe we will be lucky enough that one or two of them will share here.)

I wonder who will write the next "If I Were..." poem?

This week, I welcome illustrator Nina Crittenden to my other blog, Sharing Our Notebooks.  Nina shares some neat notebook pages along with her inspiring words, and you will have a chance to be entered into her generous drawing of a book and pocket notebook.

Fun to hear Matt's answer to you Amy. I imagine this will start whole groups of people wondering "If I Were" animal poems. It's an interesting exercise to think about people too? What about "if I were a baker, etc."

Thanks to you both.
