The Poetry Friday roundup is here, and I'm so glad you are too...
Happy National Poetry Month!
Welcome to Day 3 of this Year's Poem Farm Project!
Find the Complete April 2015 Poem and Song List Here
First, I would like to welcome all old and new friends to The Poem Farm this April. Spring is a busy time on all farms, and this one is no exception. Each April, many poets and bloggers take on special poetry projects, and I'm doing so too. You can learn all about Sing That Poem! and how to play on my April 1st post, where you will also find the list of the whole month's poems and tunes as I write and share them. If you'd like to print out a matching game page for yourself, you can find one here, and during April 2015, you'll be able to see the song list right over there in the left hand sidebar.
Yesterday's poem was Blue Soul. Here is the tune that goes along with it, below. Did you figure it out?
And here, below, is today's poem. Look at the song list in the sidebar or on your matching form to see if you can puzzle out which tune matches this one.
Constellations at Carnegie Science Museum

Students - I did not know what today's poem would be about until yesterday afternoon. However, I did know the tune I'd write it to...and so when I saw this constellation bit of art in at the Carnegie Science Museum in Pittsburgh, PA...I knew that I'd found my topic. After all, constellations had JUST the right number of syllables for my tune!
In writing poems to various song tunes, one of the decisions I must make is the decision of "how many verses." These are finding their own way, and I am just letting each one go as long as it wishes to go.
Tomorrow I'll sing you this one, but I bet that you can sing it to yourself today.
For those of you who are new here, Poetry Friday is a special tradition in the Kidlitosphere. It's a weekly gathering and sharing of our favorite poetry thoughts and poems and books and goodnesses of the week. People take turns hosting, and I am tickled to host today, this first Poetry Friday of National Poetry Month 2015. There are countless good souls who love poetry, and I feel lucky to know so many of you.
Today I will be spending some time at The Broadway Market here in Buffalo, NY, buying a butter lamb and other such happiness... So, please add your link below if you have one to share, and whether you are sharing or not, please enjoy the poetry party, all around! Happy first Poetry Friday of Poetry Month!
