Stoplight Poetry

We went to the library booksale today and I picked up a few more old copies of poetry for children, including the amusing Kermit's Garden of Verses। We keep poetry books in the car and I read one poem per stoplight. It's great! We get just a little nibble of poetry and time to chew on it before the next light.

In my previous life (B.C. - before children), I was a college English teacher, specializing in composition and ESL composition.
