Jacqueline Hallenbeck:

“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.

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 links (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. 🙂

Leave the link and the name of the poem  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.
