Poetry Friday: Look Who’s There!

Check out the Poetry Friday Roundup at GottaBook.

National Poetry Month is nigh, and I’m posting a book spine poem every Friday until April. Want to try it? 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 continue to roll on in and I’m pretty excited to share them.

On to today’s book spine poem…
