Poetry in the Library

As part of Poetry Month, Mrs. Julsonnet's Library Club of Superb Awesomeness worked on making book spine poetry.

It's a lot harder than you'd think!  However, they did a great job.  See for yourself:







Another activity was to construct a poem using every letter in the alphabet in sequential order.  This was very hard and made book spine poetry look like a piece of cake.  Here is my terrible attempt:

A boy called Dave eats figs, growing huge in just kiloseconds,
later, many nod, openly pointing, quite robust sarcasm too.
"Underfed? Very well," Xavier yelled zealously.

What about you?  Do you think you can write a poem from every letter of the alphabet?  Shel Silverstein did it.  Reply with your attempts, I'm dying to see how others do.
