A Little Spine Poem

One last post for National Poetry Month...


Here is my attempt at a spine poem, which I first saw on Pragmatic Mom last week.  Melissa posted her wonderful one at Julia's Bookbag yesterday, inspired by Curly Birds, inspired by Muddy Girls...  Just Google "spine poems," you'll find many more!  So here is my late night attempt.  I meant to enlist the girls for help, but time did not allow for that.

A girl's book:
Baby faces, BIG, little.  
Princess baby, twinkle toes,
I love you as much...
Someday, Stargirl,
catch the moon, the moon by night.
The queen of the ball -
a wrinkle in time...
Goodnight moon.
I love you through and through.

    1. It was cool. I didn't like putting away all the books I got out afterward, of course - I pulled a lot more than this! What can I say? I'm lazy. ;)

  5. It would be cool to create a whole bunch of fun spine poems then make them into art work... hang them near a bookshelf or something. :)
