The Poem’s the Thing

April 23, 2014

Hi from McPopper Children’s Hospital! It’s Lily at the computer, and I hope you’re having a wonderful day. April is one of my favorite months because it’s National Poetry Month! I always get so excited when I’m able to read and write poetry because it’s such a beautiful and meaningful way to tell a story, or share a feeling, or describe something…or anything really! That’s why poetry is so exciting – there are no rules. Nothing’s off limits when it comes to writing poetry, and that’s what makes poetry so special. So, without further ado, Max, the Hospital Critterz, and I wrote a poem just for you. We hope you like it! And be sure to share your poetry with us and post it on our blog. We can’t wait to read your work! (And don’t forget…have a critterrific poetry-filled month!)

A Poem about Poems
Poems are great
Because they don’t have to rhyme,
Although they always can, if that’s your plan.
Poems are great
Because they can be short or long,
Even just one word, if that’s what you prefer.
Poems are great
Because every topic is allowed,
From dinosaurs to ocean shores, or floating on a cloud.
Poems are great
Because each one is different and new,
They are truly special, just like you.
