Happy National Poetry Day everyone! First day of the Write Path international collaborative poetry project and today we will be continuing poems and finishing limericks started by published poets on the theme of Games which is the National Poetry Day theme this year. Please do have a look at the progress later today: http://writepath.ning.com/profiles/blog/list?q=06%2F10%2F2011
My own favourite poem is The Tiger by William Blake :http://www.eecs.harvard.edu/~keith/poems/tyger.html
but in keeping with the theme of Games I'd like to share this one by Allen Ahlberg all about the 'games' students play with The Supply Teacher:http://www.poemhunter.com/poem/the-supply-teacher/
I hope you enjoy a day filled with rhythm and rhyme. With the sad news today of the death of Steve Jobs I'd also like to dedicate The Tiger to him, he was indeed a tiger of a man and I hope his wifi signal in heaven is strong and unlimited.
My blog is a collection of thoughts and I hope you will learn something about me from the ramblings as well as finding some useful links. I'm Bev Humphrey and I'm a Literacy, School Libraries and Technology Consultant. I am self employed so views expressed are solely my own.
