to My Poetry

I do not write poetry. I do enjoy it. I wanted to share some of my favorites. Here you will find many poems that are just plain fun or moving,

I am also going to add a few notes with some of the poems for homeschool people. Some of these poems are poems I used when I was still teaching public school. Hopefully the notes I add will help a homeschool family understand and enjoy poetry too.


How To Eat a Poem


Don't be polite

Bite in

Pick it up with your fingers and lick the juice

that may run down your chin

It is ready and ripe now, whenever you are.

You do not need a knife or fork or spoon

or plate or napkin or tablecloth

For there is no core

or stem

or rind

or pit

Oo seed

or skin

to throw away
