I have never gotten too terribly excited about poetry. But thanks to my girls and Gotta Book, I seem to be embracing poetry month this year. Each day a great poem is landing in my in box and with it links to lots of other great poetry related wonders. This weekend, for example, the girls and I explored the most fabulous e-book, Poetry Tag Time. If you have a Kindle, Nook or iPad, the reading process is simple. Just go to iTunes and download this 99 cent treasure. If not, go to Gotta Book to learn how to download it to your computer.
In this clever book, 30 poets participate in a game of poetry tag. Each poet ends their poem with a quick comment in which they invite another poet to be ‘it’ in this ongoing game of tag. The poems are then all loosely or in some cases quite directly related to the one that precedes it.
I found the book impossible to put down as I waited to see how each poem connected to the one before it. Enjoy!
