Poetry Friday: Three of Them

Check out the Poetry Friday round-up at Gathering Books.

To get things warmed up for National Poetry Month, I’m posting a book spine poem every Friday until April. Want to get in on the act? Maybe give it a shot with kids? Click here for some tips on creating your own.

If you do give it a go, take a picture and post it to your blog, or send it my way via email (scopenotes (at) gmail (dot) com). On Monday, April 2nd I’ll posting a gallery with all your work, and continue to add to it for the entire month. Submissions have been coming in and they’re awesome.

I bring you not one, but three book spine centos today, each one short and sweet.
