  1. Love the mental picture that comes to mind with this one. Well done!

  2. That is a good way to do a poem I have to try that one day. I think I will tell my kids to try it to, thank you, MB

      Maria, this would be an excellent method for kids to practice “writing” poetry. Thank you for the idea–I’m going to try it with my next crop of students!
