First Spine Poem: “Daniel Finds a Poem” #SOL17


May I be a little bit silly today? It’s Friday, after all,  and it’s the first week back after February vacation. I apologize up front for the juvenile ending to this, my first attempt at a spine poem, but the last two books were just sitting there on the shelf begging to be included! Yup, they were. I couldn’t ignore them! Here goes.

Daniel finds a poem,

A poem for Peter,

Lost in the woods.

Every day birds,

Waiting for wings,

Sweep up the sun.

Forest has a song!

Animal tracks,

Over and under the snow.

Whose poop is that?

I wanna go home!

Christie Wyman, 2017

  1. This poem is such an exercise on the importance of punctuation. I tried reading bottom to top and it made no sense. Then I read what you wrote and it was funny and of course, made sense.
