Share a Poem

Okay, if you missed the opportunity to share a poem for National Haiku Poetry Day, never fear! April 26 has been designated national Poem in your Pocket Day.

From now, until the end of the day on April 26, I will be collecting linksΒ (not the poem itself!), to a poem you’d like to share. This may be a poem that you’ve published in an online journal, a poem published on your own personal blog, or a favorite poem that can be found online. Just one please. πŸ™‚

Leave the link and the name of the poem Β in the comments below, and on April 26th, I will put together the post. For haiku, you may use the first line as the title.

    Three Little Pigs in a Blanket

    Three Little Pigs in a Blanket
    crashed a pajama party.
    One started playing the trumpet.
    Three Little Pigs in a Blanket
    pulled out a rope and tried to jump it.
    Their names were Zeik, Bo and Marty.
    Three Little Pigs in a Blanket
    crashed a pajama party.

    • Jacqueline– I’m glad you said something. I just rescued your poem from where it had ended up in my spam filter! Do you have a link for this to a blog page? If not, it’s okay, I can include the poem.
