Poets' Tea

Today was my last Poets' Tea of the school year.

I received lots of nice comments from parents, hugs from the Northfield Third Graders, and this tanka:

Mrs. Poems

She has short brown  hair
She dresses pretty and kool
She helps people understand poetry
I like her as my poetry teacher
I wish there were more people like Mrs. Poems

It came with a cute manga-type drawing, in which I am wearing a stylish black mini-dress and sporting side-swept bangs that coyly cover one eye.

Thanks, Northfield! Can't wait until next year.

Wow! What an honor--a poem written just for you! You must be a good poet-in-residence! Congrats!

Thanks, Laura. The kids are so sweet. I love being a visiting poet, because the students know our time together is special. And they do an amazing job with their poetry.
