Welcome to Poetry Friday! I am glad you are here, during National Poetry Month. Last month, friend, Moe Phillips and I decided to host a Classic Found Poem Palooza. They entries are arriving to the party dressed as characters from favorite classics. Please feel free to add your poems in the comments and I will add to the Padlet.
Stop by here on Saturday, April 15 for the latest line for the Progressive Poem.

Jone: This is a great idea. I must stop back later and bring a poem. Thanks so much for hosting today. Cheers!

Thanks for hosting, Jone. Fun idea--I'll try to add to the padlet tomorrow.

An interesting twist on found poetry, Jone. Both inviting and intriguing in its potential. I shall now ponder some possibilities. Thanks for igniting my curious mind. I am keen to see what it reveals. Thank you also for hosting

This was fun, Jone, though now, having tried this, realize there are so many different possibilities, maybe less tied to plot. It was interesting to try this. Thanks for hosting!

Thanks, Jone, for such a marvelous idea you and Moe cooked up! This week, loads more poems for us to enjoy! Here is my offer: from Bambi, A Life in the Woods by Felix Salten

Oh Linda! This is so spot on gorgeous. I adore it! xo, a.

Thanks, Amy, it is a book to savor, however, I thought Jone meant for us to leave the poems here, oops! Now put on the padlet.

Jone, thank you for hosting today. I'll look forward to Saturday's progressive poetry line. I'll also look forward to reading all the classic poems on the Padlet. The Poem Palooza sounds like a blast. Enjoy! I would have loved to dress up like Don Quixote.

Ah this was fun, thanks for the challenge Jone, and thanks for hosting!
4/14/2023 02:23:52 am
This is such a fun and fabulous idea, Jone. I think that readers of all ages would love doing this, and I am going to tuck it in my pocket and also try this and hold the idea in my mind as I read. It is so interesting to think about how a different book will lead us to different poems, and how a same book will lead different people to different poems too. You always do the coolest things. Thank you for hosting and Happy continued National Poetry Month! xo, Amy

Jone! Thank you for all the work you did on this! and oh the poems are so much fun to read!
4/14/2023 04:02:05 am
Thanks for hosting! I know you gave us PLENTY of lead time to add to the Padlet, but there's no time like...now. I'm headed over to A WRINKLE IN TIME to see if I can find a cherita!
4/14/2023 04:21:13 am
So fun to read these!
4/14/2023 04:57:42 am
Thanks for hosting with all these wonderful found poems. I wasn't going to post because I am at a book festival today and presenting, so my commenting will be limited, but I was compelled to share your student's video to Mary Lee's poem and a student poem. Thanks for all you do to hold us all up.
4/14/2023 05:19:31 am
Oh, what a good idea! I'm already thinking about the possibilities. Thank you for hosting today!
4/14/2023 06:06:47 am
Thank you for hosting today, Jone! I love found poems, and these are all terrific. You've inspired me!
4/14/2023 07:38:48 am
What a clever challenge! Thanks for hosting, Jone!
4/14/2023 09:28:42 am
Thanks for hosting today, Jone. I created a padlet account just to add my found poem from A Tree Grows in Brooklyn, which I just recently read for the first time. I hope I posted the poem correctly. I look forward to reading all the poems!
4/14/2023 09:30:22 am
You did indeed to it correctly. I approved it just now.
4/14/2023 09:50:49 am
Hi Jone! Thanks for hosting! This is a very creative idea you and Moe had! I love all the different perspectives. I'll enjoy reading the padlet entries! I think i would like to be Fern from Charlotte's Web! Or, perhaps one of the characters from A Wrinkle in Time - both favorite books of mine. I'll have to give it a try! Sounds like a challenge!

Jone, your found poem palooza is so much fun! Looking forward to seeing all the entries, which are pretty numerous already! Thanks for hosting among all your other businesses.

Thanks, Buffy. I published it on Padlet.

Hello Jone, what a blast your palooza is. I'm recognizing some favorite books...and now that school is out for the weekend, I'll go grab a copy of one of my favs. Thank you for all the ways you celebrate poetry and include friends in it.

This padlet looks amazing! I can't wait to explore it.
