Celebrate National Poetry Month with a Haiku or Two!
Haiku from MY MAINE (Poetry & Photography Collection) by Bette A. Stevens
Springtime melodies, humming
Tapping to the tunes
I love designing posters to go with my poems and often use photos I have taken. As a former teacher (now retired) in grades four through eight, I know that kids of all ages love writing poetry and they enjoy illustrating their poems too. It’s simple and it’s so much fun to tell a story in the three short lines of Haiku. Of course, you can write as many stanzas as you wish. Give it a try!
Grab the kids, take out your pens, head into the great outdoors and get inspired!
