30 Poems in 30 Days: April 26

Wednesday, April 25, 2012

A new poetry book arrived yesterday that had all the librarians cracking up.  Gail Carson Levine's Forgive Me, I meant to Do It: False Apology Poems is hilarious! The poems are all based on Willaim Carlos William's famous poem "This Is Just To Say." Don't pick it up expecting nice happy poetry! These poems, like the original, are a little bit mean but any kid who's ever been forced to make a false apology will love it.

So of course, today's poem is "This Is Just To Say."  Go here to read the whole poem at poets.org.
