Poetry for the Holidays

Today, I’m over at Lost in Books talking about poetry for the holidays as part of the 2012 Holiday Post Extravaganza.

I was pleased when Rebecca said she was “entranced from the first paragraph” of my guest post.  I hope that means everyone else will be.

Please check out my post for 9:00 am today and check out the other posts she has planned throughout the holidays.

For those of you who have participated in the 2012 Fearless Poetry Reading Challenge, I hope you’ll comment here and let me know how you liked the challenge and if you have any suggestions for the 2013 challenge.


  1. Off to read the guest post! I wouldn’t change much about the challenge. The minimal requirements are great for getting people to give poetry a chance.

    • Had problems commenting on Rebecca’s site so will just comment here. That’s one of my favorite Frost poems and does make me think of the holidays and fun out in the snow. Seuss and Silverstein are perfect for introducing kids to poetry.

  2. I like the challenge because it reminds me who else is writing about poetry. I’m not much of a joiner, so I liked that it didn’t have many rules.

    • O good. At least it’s good for something, though I think I have to make the Mr. Linky more prominent so people can find it easily.
