Poem Power!

April 10, 2013

Hi from McPopper Children’s Hospital! It’s Lily at the computer, and I hope you’re all having a great day. Beary Bruised and I are excited to announce that April is National Poetry Month! And that means it’s the perfect month to not only read a lot of different poetry, but to write some of your own as well. Poems can be short, long, rhyming, non-rhyming, serious, funny…whatever you’d like! The best thing about poetry is that it can really be anything you want it to be. This month celebrates poems, poets, and the happiness that poetry can bring. So with that in mind, Beary Bruised and I decided to write some haiku poems. Haiku is a short kind of poetry that follows a certain number of syllables in each line. The first line has five syllables, the second line has seven syllables, and the third line has five syllables as well. Here are some of our haiku poems:

Hospital Critterz
Are full of fun and smiles
We’re so glad they’re here

Both Lily and Max
Have fun together all day
At the hospital

Our readers are great
We love to visit with them
And share laughs and joy

Believe in yourself
You will accomplish your dreams
You are so special

Be sure to write your own haikus this month, and we’d love for you to post them on our blog! And don’t forget…have a critterrific poetry-filled day!
