Goodbye Poetry Month

It is time to say goodbye to poetry month for this year. But that doesn’t mean that you might not see a poem or two pop up.  But for now, I leave you with this one.

Poetry Poem

You don’t just get to write a poem once

You gotta write it over and over and over

until it feels real good to you

And sometimes it does

and sometimes it doesn’t

That’s what’s really great

and really stupid

about poetry.

–by Jacqueline Woodson from Locomotion
