Catching Poems



Catching Poems

Cast a line.
Reel it in.
Check the hook.
Cast again.

Poems swim
Beneath the sea
In schools of thought
Called poetry!

Just great, Charles. I hope you wouldn't mind if I use your poem in a lesson for students that I'll work with in poetry this year? I'll certainly share with those teachers I work with!

Thanks so much, Linda! Yes, please feel free to share with students and teachers. Tell your students Father Goose looks forward to reading their poems!

Very nice!

This would make a great bulletin board. Maybe Linda will create one with your poem on the boat and her students' poems on the fish. Wonderful images, Charles!!

Jama, thanks again for your glowing review of my new series of books from Capstone Books for Young Readers
